Driven Soil Nails – Tranquil Court

Selwyn Avenue, Charlotte, North Carolina

Morrison Engineers designed and installed approximately 6,500 square feet of driven soil nail with a battered flexible face for excavation support for the construction of a new condo development, Tranquil Court on Selwyn Avenue.

The soil nail wall was installed in phases to meet the phased construction schedule developed by the general contractor, J.F. Schultze Construction.

The first phase included the installation of the largest square footage of soil nail wall, approximately 4,850 sf, which was installed in 10-working days. J.F. Schultze was then able to begin construction on the first of two buildings while coordination issues were being resolved for the second building.
