Description
Designing & Installing Retaining Walls Training

Past Hands-On Training Day Project

Retaining walls provide an excellent way to increase usable property space, control erosion, and provide aesthetic detail to a property. Designing and building a sound retaining wall requires an understanding of many different factors. This class offers a basis to design and install a variety of different walls. Classroom instruction will focus on design factors, material selection, and estimating.

We will then be holding a free *additional day of hands-on training on March 21, 2017 in order to test your skills by building an actual wall. Your retaining wall abilities will provide an added high value option to your existing client services offered. This class works in conjunction with the Concrete Pavers course.
