Efficient design of anchored quay walls
Robert West hosted a breakfast presentation from Anker Schroeder. As industry leaders in the manufacture of tie bar systems, Anker Schroeder presented the latest best practice and innovations for the design and installation of tie rod systems to our engineering team.
The marine environment holds considerable challenges for both the design and construction of anchored retaining walls. To develop efficient and buildable designs it requires careful consideration of predicted settlement, connection articulation, anticipated corrosion levels and constructability.
Two of the projects we are currently working on – Blackfriars Embankment Foreshore Temporary Cofferdam and Chelsea Embankment Foreshore Cofferdam – involve anchored retaining walls.
Our close ties with industry leaders allow us to develop innovative designs in line with current best practice and to maximise both design and construction efficiency as well as sustainability.
