Cost effective & resilient infrastructure retaining walls, embankments and cuttings
Our expertise has been built up over 100 years of solving retaining structure problems and continuously innovating our offer of tested and certified solutions. In addition, partnering with leading institutions and professionals we endeavor to develop new design approaches and design tools to enhance the service life of our walls and soil reinforcement structures.
Maccaferri solutions embrace sustainability. Our unsurpassed range of geogrid reinforcements maximizes the opportunity to reuse site-won materials as backfill to a reinforced slope. This saves on the export and import of materials from site, embracing sustainability and reducing polluting truck movements. Potential cost savings. Cost savings through the reuse of site-won material with geogrids can be substantial on a project. This is a prime consideration of our engineers when they begin working with clients on slope reinforcement solutions.
With our skill and experience in this solution area and using our design software MacSTARs, we can combine geogrids with other systems such as our Terramesh®, Green and Mineral Terramesh® to form hybrid structures offering additional benefits of cost-effectiveness and improved buildability. This expertise has enabled us to successfully construct many ‘mega-structures’; our reinforced soil slopes and structures are regularly over 30m tall. In fact, we have successfully designed and implemented structures over 70m high; probably the tallest such structures in the world by any supplier.
