Slope Stabilization/Landslide Repair
Slope Stabilization involves geotechnical construction methods to retain earth, rock and debris on a slope to keep it from sliding. These construction techniques can be designed for newly constructed slopes so that they can be excavated to a steeper angle or for existing slopes that are experiencing slope failure. Slope stabilization usually involves the installation of soil nails or driven soil anchors and then a facing material to retain the material between the nails or anchors. The facing material can be a high strength flexible steel mesh or shotcrete. In some situations, the nails are attached as anchors for a retaining wall at the slope face. Ameritech has the capability to construct these various types of slope stabilization methods even on slopes where access is very limited. Because of our specialized equipment, Ameritech can access locations where traditional drilling equipment cannot be used.
