THE SHIELD EFFECT
Shield worked directly with the client, gathering information and performing assessments to create the ultimate solution. The key was working to create the illusion of increased yard space through an angled wall with deliberate planning. By mitigating the need for a geogrid reinforcement system, Shield’s team created a retaining wall that delivered the necessary protection for the new residential home without infringing on neighboring properties. For the homeowner, this solution also created a beautiful aesthetic that doesn’t hold back the home’s appearance or its surrounding space, but enhances it. By designing and developing a retention wall with functionality and appearance in mind, Shield Engineering developed a solution fit for today’s needs while also helping prepare the client for what the future holds. As sediment shifts and the elements change the layout of the land, these homeowners can rest assured that their property’s retaining wall is well-equipped to protect their property and withstand whatever Mother Nature may have in store.
