Recon was asked to study the site and propose a solution. With the help of Recon’s consulting engineer, a proposal to build the wall as a gravity wall was developed. Significant excavation was avoided. Time and money was saved. A great looking wall was created.
There were a few issues that had to be taken into consideration before building the wall. There could be no excavation into existing property owners yards and the existing power poles behind the wall could not be disturbed.
There was also a durability issue because the face of the wall was just two feet away from a busy street curb. There would be lots of road salt spray so the City of Burnsville wanted the durability of wet-cast air entrained concrete. The solution was a Recon Gravity Wall!
