Retaining and retaining structures

Geo Soluções understands that the optimization of land occupation is a crucial aspect for the economic viability of a project nowadays. Added to this, the limited availability of flat areas and the environmental restrictions for borrowing and disposal of soils, make needed a choice of solutions that allow o use of local resources as building material.

​It is with this in mind that Geo Soluções offers ao market one range of solutions that allow adapting the local topography to the ideal geometry of the project, through systems economical, safe and easy to perform.

With more than decades of experience in consulting, design and execution of works, and with a multidisciplinary and highly technical team, Geo Soluções is a specialist in technologies and containment systems in cut and fill situations. Like countless projects in Brazil and abroad, we have the experience and portfolio necessary to meet and assist our clients' technical, commercial and executive needs. 


Walls and slopes in reinforced soil: Enveloped Soil

The self-enveloping reinforced soil wall face system is a pioneering facing technology that is very common for temporary and low-cost works. It can be used in permanent works with the association of a definitive covering of the envelopamento such as shotcrete, masonry or vegetation.

Enveloping the face: with the function of constructive form during the execution of the earthwork, the self-enveloping of the reinforcement on the face guarantees adequate anchoring of the geosynthetic reinforcements and constitutes a pioneering technology in retaining walls in reinforced soil. To allow the enveloping, removable forms of wood or lost forms composed of raffia sacks filled with local soil can be used.
