Solutions to speed construction & lower costs

The commercial and industrial industries are the flagship of a thriving economy and often play an integral supporting role in recoveries from recessions and pandemics. The rising costs associated with construction materials combined with frequent labor shortages make finding an economical solution hard to find.

When building commercial or industrial structures, the last thing owners and contractors need is soft soils causing delays. However, the reality is that many sites need to be built on heavily saturated and less-than-desirable soils. These conditions substantially increase project costs, slow down construction schedules, and cause future maintenance issues.

Tensar is a premier provider of technology-driven site solutions based on advanced soil stabilization technologies that incorporate high-performance, patented products. Our team brings proven engineered infrastructure solutions to standard design practices. With over 10,000 successful projects worldwide, we can offer customized solutions that address a wide range of commercial and industrial site development challenges.

Soil Stabilization

Our proven geogrids provide an economical solution to what could otherwise be a costly problem. By incorporating geogrids into design specifications, owners and contractors can reduce the material requirements for constructing roads, parking lots, perimeter roads, crane pads, and laydown yards. The reduction of excavation and haul-off also shortens construction schedules. These solutions work to meet performance requirements and keep budgets – and schedules – on track.

Fix Soft Soils


Frequent heavy traffic loading can cause accelerated deformation/rutting of an unstabilized section to both the base layer and the subgrade. Tensar geogrids can improve the long-term performance of paved commercial and industrial surfaces by minimizing aggregate movement under these roads and pavements to maintain modulus values.

Higher Performance Pavements

Pavement Maintenance

When commercial and industrial pavements crack, the conventional maintenance strategy specifies placing an asphalt overlay over the existing rigid or flexible pavement. For each inch of applied overlay, existing cracks are generally deterred from reflecting to the surface by one year. Although some additional service life is gained, it’s only a temporary fix. Hot-mix asphalt (HMA) pavement reinforcement, like Tensar’s GlasGrid® system and GlasPave® paving mats, adds tensile strength to the pavements and is proven to dramatically increase the life of overlays.

Reduce Pavement Maintenance

Walls & Slopes

Since not all commercial properties or industrial facilities are built on level flat land, retaining wall or slope reinforcement solutions may be necessary, especially those in mountainous terrains or marine areas. Conventional solutions, including cast-in-place concrete walls and sunken pilings, can be costly, difficult to stage, time-consuming, and labor-intensive. With complete systems featuring our uniaxial geogrid, Tensar’s single-source grade separation solutions offer the cost advantages of a mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) retaining wall without the consequences of complex wall systems from multiple vendors.
