Client's Challenge

For years, the community along Beau Pres Road did not have an adequate access road due to a landslip that occurred after a heavy rain event. Many options were analyzed, and all exceeded the available repair budget.

Tensar Solution

P.U.R.E. chose the SierraScape system for their design that provided the neighborhood with a safe and wider road for residents and was completed 6 months ahead of schedule. The new road now gives the community better access and cuts the residents' commute time.
