Health Tower Reinforcement SS150 Tiebacks

Intech provided tieback anchors to a partner to reinforce the excavation needed for foundation walls of a health tower. Read more about how Intech streamlined the installation process and how we can help with your next ground improvement project.

The Problem

A partner reached out to Intech to supply SS150 tiebacks to reinforce the retaining walls structure needed for a new foundation for a new health tower.

The Solution

What was initially scheduled to be a quick project ended up requiring several redesigns. Intech worked with engineers from three different companies to complete a final design and organize material delivery.

The Results

Thanks to Intech’s increased inventory, we were able to supply the necessary tiebacks and bolt-on helices to complete the project. We packed, unpacked, repacked, and shipped items multiple times on short notice.

Was the Partner Satisfied?

Our partner was extremely satisfied with our service and plans to work with us again.

Tieback Anchors FAQ

What Are Tieback Anchors?

Tieback anchors are earth retention anchoring systems used to reinforce the retaining walls of permanent and temporary structures.

What Are the Advantages of Tieback Anchors?

Tieback anchors can be installed in limited access areas and don’t require the use of grout or concrete. Other advantages include:

  • Maximum flexibility
  • Predictable capacity
  • Minimal labor costs

How Are Tieback Anchors Installed?

Tieback anchors are drilled into retained soil with hydraulic rotary drilling equipment. Once minimum depth is obtained, the capacity is determined by reading the installation torque and comparing it to the holding capacity of the soil. The anchors are tensioned and tested once the necessary capacity is reached. Testing is done without curing time or spoils cleanup, reducing installation time and labor costs.

What Projects Require Tieback Anchors?

Tiebacks are an ideal solution to support bowed or titled foundations and retaining walls. Projects that use tieback anchors include:

  • Seawalls
  • Shoring
  • Slope stabilization
  • Earth retention
  • Sheet piling
  • Retaining walls
