Reinforced Earth Walls

Zenith Civil is one of Australia’s leading builders of reinforced earth walls.

Our company’s expertise is called upon for significant projects
across Australia including major highway and overpass infra-
structure development as well as for hydraulic and mining
projects.

Our experienced engineers liaise closely with clients and
project consultants to ensure that the project meets all
geotechnical and geophysical requirements as well as
physical constraints and environmental integration.

In all Zenith Civil projects, detailed design and
construction drawings are accompanied by detailed  cost
analysis that helps ensure that there are no cost overruns.

Each reinforced earth wall project is measured against the key criteria of:

• Strength, to ensure the maximum possible load baring capacity
• Durability of materials used for low maintenance and maximum working life
• Cost effectiveness, achieved by documented and well managed systems that allows for accurate and rapid construction with minimal delays
• Adaptability to develop the best result even under the most challenging circumstances, including restricted right-of-way, unstable natural slopes, marginal foundation conditions and large settlements
• Aesthetic appeal that can be achieved by using a variety of facings

Case Study

Moving in a sweep and changing levels, the reinforced earth walls at the Stewart Street Interchange in Tugun are integral to one of the most complex interchanges on the Gold Coast.

Designed to eliminate a dangerous intersection, the interchange has been designed to cope with future increases in traffic expected as the Tugun Bypass gains popularity with drivers.
