Need an existing retaining wall repaired? Conigliaro Block can help. We specialize in rapid mobilization and rapid construction methods. Members of our team have extensive site know-how, including years of experience in rapid deployment military construction methods.
In the following example, the Conigliaro Block team was brought in to repair a failing wall that was installed by others 20 years ago. The wall was over 300 feet long and 10 feet tall.
The wall failed for many reasons, including the fact that the geogrid was installed incorrectly, the backfill material was not structural fill, the base trench was not installed properly and lastly water was allowed to build up behind the wall.
Although the blocks were not nearly as nice looking as our blocks, they were still serviceable and so the customer elected to reuse them.
The wall was taken down and reinstalled properly in less than 30 days, including mobilizing all men, equipment and materials as well as installing the base course, a drainage pipe, a drainage column, structural fill and restacking all the blocks.
While not the prettiest wall, (after all they’re not our blocks!), it will serve its purpose for many years to come. If you have a failing wall that needs to be repaired or replaced, please call (888) CONIG – 25 for a free quote!
The wall was patched many times over the years and was leaning heavily in many areas
