GEODesign provided design and construction services for remediation of a 30 foot high rock wall. Test borings and geophysical borehole logging were used to evaluate the rock fracture patterns, which indicated dipping towards the adjacent property. GEODesign evaluated various rock remediation options and determined that a rockfall drape system is the best option for the site conditions.
The Solutions Unearthed
- Test borings and borehole logging indicated that some rock fractures were dipping towards the rock face and adjacent properties thereby creating a hazard to tenants and structures.
- Access to the top and bottom of the rock wall was extremely limited to construction equipment.
- GEODesign recommended and designed a rockfall drape system that included deep rock anchors at the top of the slope, steel mesh panels covering the rock face, and rock bolts at the bottom of the slope.
