HGI was recently contracted to perform a geotechnical subsurface investigation on a slope in order to provide a mitigation plan for top of slope reconstruction. We developed construction plans that included: soil nail details with recommendations for reinforcement, corrosion protection, anchorage and connections; grout type; steel type; reinforcement for retaining walls and footings; and recommendations for concrete design strength. HGI also performed on-site pre-constructions meetings, observed soil nail borings as they were drilled and grouted, and prepared an As-Built report.
