Ground anchors and soil nails are geotechnical elements that are used to support structures, such as a warehouse, bridge, and roadway, as well as stabilise slopes and weak soils. They are installed to restrain a structure’s movement and hold it firmly in place on load-bearing soil or hold soil firmly in place after excavation.
Here at Aarsleff Ground Engineering, we offer a multitude of in-house services including the design and installation of both techniques, enabling us to execute programmes effectively and efficiently, shrinking cost for our clients whilst also reducing project timescales.
Although both geotechnical elements have similarities on the surface; they create minimal disturbance to surrounding soils or structures, can be installed easily, and used for temporary support or long-term applications, they each have different working mechanisms that are important to realise when considering their application in your next construction project.
