Riverside Nursing Home Slope Stabilization

Hopewell, VA

General Contractor: Hopewell Real Estate, LLC

This site, located on the Appomattox river, required stabilization of the slope on top of which a nursing home was constructed. The slope was failing, resulting in movement of the nursing home. Technical Foundations designed and constructed a specialized rig that could traverse the steep terrain around the building and installed 151 grouted soil nails, both 6 and 8 inch in diameter and approximately 30 feet in length. After the soil nails were installed a TECCO metal mesh material was placed and tied down by the soil nails. Leave a comment…
