Slope stabilisation is useful in instances where local authorities design steep slopes to maximize land use. If the frictional and strength characteristics of the soil cannot provide the stability needed then slope stabilisation methods are required. Issues of Slope Stability can exist on many steep clay, natural or artificially formed embankments. The stability of these embankments can be improved by installing specially designed geosynthetic materials.
In recent times we have seen a great increase in the demand for slope remediation, rockfall protection and landslide mitigation, which appears to be driven by the ongoing adverse weather conditions. However this may also be influenced by a now more educated and aware public towards safety and the risks/dangers of the natural environment in today’s society. There is also an ever increasing level of safety requires by local authorities in the building/ construction industry.
Slope Stabilisation is one of our retaining system services, which also includes:
