In Depth Analysis
Two Tieback walls were designed to stabilize a large slope along the scenic route of SR89A in Sedona, AZ. Aesthetics was the #1 concern with these two walls and a carved and stained finish was the solution. In order to assure the exact replication of the natural Coconino Sandstone formation finish found within this valley, BSI pulled over 2.3 miles of control wire to diagram all the cracks and craves over the two wall faces. As the carved face was completed, these control wire were cut from the freshly placed shotcrete. To create the cemented sand finish, special texture pads were used to create an almost emery board texture. Reactionary stains were used to highlight the cracks and shadow carved in rock relief.
