Our expertise extends to designing structures to cross obstacles, encompassing bridge abutments, concrete underpasses, precast concrete arch tunnels, culverts and wildlife crossings.


We deploy robust protection systems to mitigate damage from geohazards and natural disasters, including rockfall protection, debris flow mitigation and erosion control.


Our portfolio includes designing and supplying materials for geosynthetic soil reinforcement in applications like basal reinforcement and slope stabilisation.

In 1963, Henri Vidal, a French engineer, developed a new composite material using earth as a raw material.

Easy-to-use, the Reinforced Earth® technology quickly took hold as an ideal reinforced backfill solution, spawning the development of a company with offices across the five continents in just a few decades.

Today, Reinforced Earth / Terre Armée concentrates an unequalled combination of expertise and accumulated experience in the fields of soil-structure interaction and engineered backfills.
