Duffield has extensive experience in the design and construction of mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) retaining walls. These structures rely on earth reinforcement (i.e., geogrids, geotextiles, geofoam, earth anchor, etc.) and have been show to be cost effective alternatives to traditional cast-in-place walls for both temporary and permanent applications. Multiple facing options ranging from hard-scaping (i.e., modular block, stone, gabions, etc.) to a softer and natural looking vegetated (i.e., vegetated wrapped face and geocells) make MSE walls a preferred option for addressing aesthetics, stormwater management and “bio-friendly” design needs. Duffield has over 25 years of experience in the innovative design of these versatile structures.
