Sub-Grade and Pavement Drainage


Removing water to increase performance. A track or pavement structure can be weakened by water within, beneath or adjacent to it. Removing this water can improve track bed or road pavement performance. Recognising different requirements. Performance requirements will be different for an unbound pavement in a monsoon region, from an asphalt pavement in an area susceptible to ground frost…. Read more »

Weirs, Culverts and Transverse Structures

Over a century of experience in transverse structures. Transverse Structures are used to control dynamic hydraulic flows carrying solids or sediments. These structures obstruct the flow, changing its hydraulic behaviour and its ability to erode. We have over a century of experience in the selection of appropriate transverse structures, used to control water channel flow…. Read more »

Waterproofing of Reservoirs, Lakes and Channels

PE-LF-MacLine impermeable membranes for lagoons

The many functions of waterproofing and lining. Waterproofing and lining reservoirs, lakes and channels serves many functions, whether to provide storm water attenuation ponds, or prevent contaminated water polluting the ground. These containment structures are used within many market sectors including; – Slurry ponds in agriculture – Leachate lagoons in mine workings – Storm water… Read more »

Vertical Walls with Concrete Facing Panels


Situations that require our cost-effective engineered solutions. Where only a narrow construction corridor is available, or a reinforced soil structure with a vertical face in urban areas is required, we offer clients our cost-effective engineered solutions. Building in tight urban areas and mines. These structures are regularly used to support or enable the construction of… Read more »

Surface Strengthening and Support


Working to mitigate against unstable surface layers. Certain rock slopes have an unstable surface layer which often requires additional stabilisation. We offer a range of high strength mesh systems which are designed to work in conjunction with anchorages, to increase the stability of the unstable surficial layer. Key factors to consider in limiting unstable mass… Read more »

Soil Nailing


The use of soil nailing. Soil Nailing is a technique that can be used either on natural or excavated slopes, where the slope is reinforced by the insertion of tendons. The nails address the global slope stability, which are connected in turn to a facing system which provides surficial stability. Maccaferri range of solutions. Our… Read more »
