Infrastructure projects require the best use of available real estate. And one of the principal tools used to provide workable area for engineering projects is the use of earth retaining structures. These retaining walls, help professionals in the A/E/C industry cut into steep slopes or provide flat construction pads. They are in essence the hidden workhorse in land development and infrastructure project design. Professionals within the A/E/C industry are constantly re-contouring the land to accommodate infrastructure designs and development. In this course, engineers, architects, planners, contractors and design professionals will learn different applications and types of earth retaining structures, so that they can choose the design that works best for their site criteria and project.
