GEOWEB Retaining WallProject Highlight: GEOWEB® Retaining Wall - Erosion Control & Slope Stabilization Solution - Travis Riehl assisted on this unique residential GEOWEB Retaining Wall project. The benefit and reason for installing the GEOWEB Retaining Wall was that it allowed the homeowner to build up the slope, making the land more usable. With this project, the homeowner was able to convert a previously unusable slope into a now usable area that can support a driveway and eliminate the possibility of erosion. With limited site access and space, the GEOWEB was a great option for the retaining wall material. It was easily...Keep Reading

Bill Murphy, P.E.Engineer's Note: Note from Bill Murphy, P.E. - If You Know, You Know --- Pre-Bid Meetings? - “If You Know, You Know” (IYKYK) has become a ridiculously popular and annoying phrase, but it sure gets your attention. Our company proudly touts ourselves as being much more than a products distributor. We add value and become trusted advisors. This starts with education. We share knowledge of innovative solutions that have proven successful. That happens at conferences, seminars, and lunch-and-learns and continues with pre-bid and pre-construction meetings. Wait. Did I say “pre-bid”? Yes. In addition to the well-known pre-construction meetings that should happen on all projects, we offer pre-bid meetings with contractors to inform them of new-to-them innovative solutions. If we can visit them to give a presentation and let them put their hands on new products, they can better estimate the amount of time and effort it will take for proper installation. That often results in...Keep Reading
