Soil Nails and Shotcrete
Drill Tech’s contract consisted of constructing four soil nail walls. The walls consisted of 136,000 LF of soil nails and 73,000 SF of structural shotcrete. Drill Tech provided Caltrans with a Value Engineering Cost Proposal (VECP) for a sculpted and stained shotcrete finish in lieu of the original Cast-InPlace finish. DTDS was successful, and constructed the sculpted and stained shotcrete finish which saved both time and money on the entire project.
