Our experience includes segmental block walls, conventional masonry or cast-in-place concrete walls, gabion walls, and sheeting/shoring/soil nail walls. We have a full service soils laboratory and can provide complete soil testing for the design including moisture contents, Atterberg limits, triaxial shear strength, and Proctor compaction. We use state-of-the-art design software to include consideration of seismic loading and global slope stability in the retaining wall design process. These are two very important design aspects often omitted in the masonry of the wall designs we see in the market.
Engineering Consulting Services, Ltd. (ECS) provides comprehensive retaining wall design services. Being a full service geotechnical and construction materials engineering consulting firm, we provide full scale services throughout the retaining wall design process. These services include geotechnical exploration, complete wall design, and construction materials testing of the wall system.
