Earth Retention Contractors in Montana & Wyoming

The geotechnical experts at Yellowstone GeoCon design, install, and test earth retention systems for various excavations. Whether for a permanent solution or for temporary construction activities, we utilize tieback anchors, soil nails, and slope stabilization to control lateral earth movements, traffic surcharges, and water pressure caused by excavations.

Slope Stabilization

Slope stabilization is a technique that needs to be implemented to stabilize an inadequate slope to prevent dangerous and damaging slope failure. There is a wide range of slope stabilization methods, but at YGC we use the most effective: soil nails and tieback anchors.

Soil Nails

Soil nailing is a method of earth retention that relies on reinforcing strands or members installed within a soil mass to create an internally stable gravity wall or retaining system. It uses grouted, tension-resisting steel nails to reinforce soils for permanent or temporary excavations. The nails are drilled into the slope at a specific angle, then the drilled holes are pumped with high-strength grout to fully encapsulate the nail.

Tie Back Anchors

Helical Anchors (also referred to as tiebacks) provide lateral stability to foundation walls and retaining walls with unbalanced earth pressures. Helical anchors can be installed with hand-held equipment, mini-excavators, skid steers, backhoes, trackhoes, or crane-supported rigs so the anchors can be installed in almost any application.
