Slopes and Embankments
Through the successful completion of a variety of challenging projects AppleTree Construction Solutions has developed a strong understanding of the behavior of slopes and embankments. AppleTree has been called upon to investigate, analyze, and solve instabilities in slopes and embankments that have involved quick sand, artesian conditions, man-made fills, and construction related weaknesses.
AppleTree Construction Solutions has a considerable database of successfully completed projects involving ground support in top-down construction applications. Such applications include temporary support of deep excavations for bridge construction, basement construction and cut-and-cover construction, as well as temporary and permanent support of cuts in embankments and slopes for applications such as road widening and construction, dam spillway widening, crane pads, and site development, the tallest of which has reached 56 feet.
