L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc. Case Studies: Tieback Anchor and Retaining Wall Project

Friday, December 15th, 2017 by Shawna Fleming

Challenge

A property owner living on the beach in St. Augustine was experiencing pool shell movement due to loose soil conditions. The sandy conditions were causing the pool shell to move towards the water, inflicting damage to the pool shell and putting the entire pool and deck in jeopardy. A retaining wall already existed, but it was not providing adequate support. 

Solution

The engineering firm that investigated the sliding pool shell determined that the existing retaining wall needed to be replaced and tieback anchors needed to be installed in order to combat the soil instability and loose sands. L.R.E. was hired to install 11 tieback anchors, which were manufactured by Foundation Supportworks (FSI). More specifically, L.R.E. utilized 11 FSI 150 square bar tieback anchors for the project. In addition, L.R.E. poured individual footer columns for footer posts in the sand and constructed a new 75 linear foot retaining wall. These efforts permanently stabilized the pool shell.
