Several landslides have occured in the sloped land area due to the elevation difference in the area where the Bilecik University Olympic Field will be constructed. It was not appropriate to start the Olympic field construction before the problem occurring around the field is solved.
Field investigations were carried out by Maccaferri Turkey engineers to solve the problem. As a result of this investigation, it has been observed that the landslides has occurred due to internal stability problems. After the field work, it was decided to build a retaining wall to solve the problem. However, it was necessary to build the retaining wall to look aesthetically compatible with the Olympic field. For this reason, it was decided to build a retaining wall that will work with Box Gabion as a weight structure. In addition, the slope of the wall to be made with box gabion was given towards the land, allowing seating areas to be built on Box Gabions after the construction.
