Retaining walls are important for ground retention using their own mass, and its backfill mass or anchoring system aim in sustaining the terrain behind, which are usually constructed with offset cinderblocks, angled stones, wood, heavy blocks, or reinforced concrete frames filled or backfilled with well graded stone, designed for creating the mass required or geological resistance for counteracting the surcharge loadings and pressures of the earth. Steel beams can also be used as an anchor in retaining walls, which are vertically inserted into the ground, and used in reinforcing with concrete, and in linking in between with pre-fab concrete blocks and planks. Retaining walls are expected to follow strict rules and regulations, and city ordinances that are specified by experienced engineers. There are different types of retaining walls such as unreinforced masonry walls, gravity retaining walls, soldier pile retaining walls, anchored, steel-reinforced cantilevered concrete and masonry retaining walls, counterfort or buttress on cantilevered wall, criblock retaining walls, brick retaining walls, railroad tie retaining walls, and wood retaining devices. Retaining walls that are properly designed and properly engineered are constructed or poured concrete or concrete block, with steel reinforcement. Steel-reinforced retaining walls earn the highest potential for long-term excellent performance.
In any new residential or commercial construction work, the foundation is always the first piece that is constructed, creating a base for the rest of other parts or components. Foundations have different types accepted in the United States which are slab foundation, crawlspace foundation, and basement foundation. Slab is a type of foundation consists of structural concrete slab which is poured directly on the grade. Crawlspace foundation is predominantly seen in areas where there is a heavy clay content in the soil, and this is an accessible space between the soil and the bottom part of the first floor of a house. Basement foundation has more headroom compared to a crawlspace, mostly found in cold climates.
