Retaining walls for structures for infrastructure

Retaining walls may serve as support for other structures, e.g. a bridge deck or a noise barrier while retaining soil,  or it may simply retain soil, possibly with a superimposed load

Retaining walls may be gravity-based structures, anchored structures or a combination, and they may function as temporary or permanent structures.

We provide services in the field of retaining structures to ensure the client receives the optimal structure for the situation encountered.

COWI has cooperated intensely with architects to develop aesthetically acceptable retaining structures.

Soil mechanics and geotechnical services
Drawing on our in-house specialists in soil mechanics and our own boring rig, we have the best background for determining which type of retaining structure is the most suitable for a given situation.

Our services comprise:

  • Structural design
  • Concrete and sheet pile walls
  • Anchored structures
  • Anti-graffiti measures.
