An industrial tramway manufacturer required two tower foundations for a new tramway in rugged mountain terrain. Traditional construction equipment could not reach the tower locations. Our Rockfall Remediation Technicians (RRTs) drew up a plan to install a series of high-capacity drilled SuperMicropiles™ high in the peaks. Crews and purpose-built limited access drill rigs were mobilized using helicopters, and the innovative approach resulted in minimal site disturbance.
In the winter of 2011, GeoStabilization International® was contracted by a Western state’s Department of Transportation (DOT) to mitigate active landslides at 3 separate locations along a major highway in the northern part of the state.
