Our Services

ABG offers a series of free technical seminars for maintenance, geotechnical & structural highways engineers, now available via video conferencing.

To book please email highways@abgltd.com or call 01484 852096, duration is approx. 30 minutes and encompasses the following applications:

Maintenance

• Steel based road reinforcement (crack control in new road & maintenance works)
• Retaining walls
• Highway drainage
• Erosion control
• Embankment drainage and construction
• Structural drainage for walls and abutments
• Geogrids and geotextiles for sub-base and formation strengthening
• Bridge deck protection layers

Structural

Retaining walls

Geogrids and Geocells for use in the construction of retaining walls and abutments. Webwall geocells provide a green faced retaining wall utilising site won materials.

Reinforced Earth

The use of geogrids for reinforcement and stabilisation applications including surface reinforcement, slope stabilisation and sub-base stabilisation offers an environmental and cost-effective solution for such civil engineering projects.

Structural Drainage

ABG Deckdrain high performance drainage system designed as a replacement to porous blocks or no fines concrete. This BBA HAPAS approved drain has uses on abutments, walls and other structures.

Greenbridges

ABG Deckdrain geocomposite for green bridge and green tunnel construction, protecting the waterproofing and providing drainage to the structure. Removes the need for bulky porous blocks and the logistical challenge of importing granular fill.

Bridge deck indicator layer

Dekotex Geogrid bridge deck indicator mesh layer is designed specifically for use in bridge deck construction to act as warning layer to protect bridge deck waterproofing during resurfacing or repair work.

Geotechnical

• Embankment starter layers and consolidation

Discussion of thickness, drainage capacity & pressure considerations for specifying filtration & separation geocomposites to replace aggregates and enable rapid settlement

• Erosion control

Forms of erosion & consequences, prevention and stabilisation methods using natural fibre, synthetic & cellular geosynthetics
Reinforcement & Stabilisation

• Geogrids, geocells and geotextiles

Design options for reinforcing working platforms, haul roads, car parking, hard standings and reinforced earth

• Geosynthetic liners

Claymat GCLs (Geosynthetic Clay Liners) are used to provide a liquid and/or gas barrier in a wide range of environmental and civil engineering applications where containment barriers are required, including highway balancing reservoirs and retention ponds.
