Developers use geosynthetics in many aspects of building new facilities. Geotextiles are used for roads. geogrids are used to build retaining walls and grade separations, water features are lined with geomembranes, vapor barrier films are used to build houses and buildings, storm water is controlled in storm storage systems, and new green paving ideas are used for fire lane access routes. Layfield provides a complete range of geosynthetics for housing and other facilities development.
Our featured products for developers include our design services for geogrid reinforced retaining walls. Often retaining walls can add space for housing developments and extend house lots in hilly terrain. Layfield can provide design guidance and design for geogrid reinforced retaining walls in many situations. Layfield is also featuring our permeable paving systems such as Geoblock and Geoweb. These systems can create grassed fire lanes that reduce site run-off and can qualify for LEED points.
