Soil Stabilization

Ground Anchors

Ground anchors serve as an essential tool for providing stability to retaining structures, slopes, and excavation sites. These anchors, often made of high-strength steel bars or strands, are installed into pre-drilled holes in the ground and then tensioned to achieve the desired level of support. By transferring loads from the unstable or retained structure to a competent soil layer or rock stratum, ground anchors effectively mitigate the risk of structural failure or movement.

As with all geotechnical solutions, our approach is highly consultative, starting with a detailed geotechnical assessment to identify the most appropriate anchor/shoring type and design for your project’s specific conditions. Unlike more traditional methods, such as cantilevered walls, ground anchors offer the advantage of requiring less material and space, resulting in cost-effective and efficient solutions.

Unlocking the Benefits of Ground Anchors

Ground anchors, also known as earth or rock anchors, are unique geotechnical devices that transmit the loads from structures to the ground, providing excellent stabilization and support. Choosing Pacific Foundation’s Ground Anchor Services offers numerous benefits:

  • Superior Stability: Ground anchors effectively resist both tensile and shear forces, making them ideal for providing support and stability to structures.
  • Versatility: Ground anchors can be used in various soil types and geological conditions and are suitable for both temporary and permanent applications.
  • Cost-Efficient: In comparison to traditional stabilization methods, ground anchors often provide a more cost-effective solution.
  • Minimally Invasive: Installation of ground anchors causes minimal disturbance to the site, preserving the environment and existing structures.

When and Why to Use Ground Anchors

Ground anchors are versatile tools that serve a range of applications. They’re commonly used in retaining structures, slope stabilization, dam anchors, wind turbine foundations, and more. They’re particularly useful in areas with unstable soil or where traditional foundation systems may not be ideal.
