Project Type: New Tiebacks
Location: South Jordan, Utah
Date: July 2007
Description: The Draper Recreation Dpt. had installed a retaining wall along the street side of the arena and while backfilling the new wall the pressure of the heavy soil caused the wall to lean inward for over 120'.
IHPC designed the tie-back system using solid bar Helical Piers as tie-backs to once again right the existing wall and protect the integrity of the retaining wall characteristics. Custom "insert plates" were designed to keep the inside of the arena wall flush so horses would not be injured if rubbed against.
