Retaining Wall Design

Retaining wall design goes hand-in-hand with our other engineering services. Retaining walls are an alternative to a grading plan when physical constraints limit the use of a more standard grading. When grading is not optimal, Territorial-Landworks, Inc will evaluate the cost effectiveness of earth retaining structures.

Retaining wall design goes hand-in-hand with our other engineering services. Retaining walls are an alternative to a grading plan when physical constraints limit the use of a more standard grading. When grading is not optimal, Territorial-Landworks, Inc. will evaluate the cost effectiveness of earth retaining structures. While an earth retaining structure is not often the first choice, it can be necessary to gain more usable space in projects like transportation, design-built contracts, and commercial projects where parking space is at a premium and residential hillsides where limited yard space requires it.

By keeping retaining wall projects in-house with the rest of the project, our clients earn a realized economy of design. TLI also uses MSEW 3.0 software for our transportation retaining wall design projects to provide the best value. Because many factors influence the retaining wall design and type, we pair our research on local building codes, site accessibility, local building practice, and aesthetics with a thoughtful consideration of cost.

Some of the retaining wall design types in which Territorial-Landworks, Inc. specializes are:

  • Dry Stack
  • Gravity
  • Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE)
  • Cast-in-Place Concrete (CIP)
