Improve Road and Highway Projects with 3D Soil Stabilization Presented by Cory Schneider – 1.0 PDH Earned

Infrastructure development for highways and road corridors faces many challenges when it comes to project design and construction. Building asphalt or concrete roadways over soft soils requires thick base layers of expensive stone, and pavement surfaces often fail just a few years after installation. Expanding road width requires steepening corridor embankments, leading to potential slope failure that can cause road closures and damage. Stormwater management alongside roads is an increasingly common concern due to limited construction space and larger storm events. Presto Geosystems provides cost-effective, low-maintenance, quality solutions for all of these potential issues using our GEOWEB® 3D Soil Stabilization System. This webinar will explore the solutions and services that are available through Presto. Learning Objectives: • Gain an understanding of the innovative ways the GEOWEB® Soil Confinement System can provide stabilization along roadways and surrounding areas • Understand how the GEOWEB system performs in the most challenging soil conditions • Learn about the GEOWEB system’s various applications and how they can be used in the construction of roadway corridors and roadside embankments • Learn how to use the GEOWEB system to help manage stormwater runoff alongside roads Return to Course Dashboard

Designing Stable Trails and Embankments with Porous Pavements, Stabilized Slopes and Green Walls – 1.0 PDH Earned

Trails and greenways play a vital role in communities by preserving and creating open spaces for low or no-cost outdoor recreation. Trails designed with permeable surfaces rather than traditional concrete or asphalt allow for better environmental and stormwater management. Since recreational trails can be designed for a wide range of uses, including motorized and non-motorized traffic, it’s important to utilize a solution that is durable and flexible. In this webinar, we will explore a variety of soil stabilization and porous pavement products that can be tailored to the needs of individual projects—including those with hard-to-access areas and stormwater concerns. Multiple types of infill and anchoring methods allow for project customization, resulting in low-maintenance and attractive trails for years to come. Trail embankment stabilization is another consideration when designing recreational trails. The embankments may be part of the existing natural terrain or result from cuts made to accommodate the construction of the new trails. Depending on embankment steepness, the GEOWEB® 3D system can be used to stabilize slopes with single-layer protection or near-vertical, tiered retaining walls with a vegetated fascia. GEOWEB green slopes and walls protect against erosion, reduce stormwater runoff, and create a natural environment for sustainable vegetation. Learning Objectives:… Read more »

Overcome Your Toughest Site Access Challenges with Ground Protection Mats – 0.5 PDH Earned

There are many types of construction mats on the market today—most of which are large and heavy—such as timber mats and solid composite mats. Presto Geosystems offers a line of strong, lightweight, reusable construction mats made from durable, weather-resistant polyethylene. Our mats are safe and easy to use and do not require heavy equipment to handle or install. In this webinar, you will learn about the different types of construction mats provided by Presto, their engineering properties, recommended cross sections for different applications, and installation procedures. Presto’s landscape mat, used for both turf protection and scour protection, will also be reviewed, including its uses and installation procedures. Learning Objectives: • Introduction to Presto Geosystems and how our products and services can assist you with your most challenging projects. • Determine the applications for which the GEOTERRA and GEOTERRA GTO lightweight, reusable construction masts are best-suited. • Gain an understanding of where you can utilize the construction mats and how to install them. • Learn about our GEORUNNER mats and how they can be used in both turf protection and scour protection.   Return to Course Dashboard

Improve Energy Infrastructure Resilience with 3D Soil Stabilization & Ground Protection Mats – 1.0 PDH Earned

The energy sector is faced with many challenges when it comes to project design and construction. Many times access/construction roads need to be built over soft, wet soils and must be able to support very heavy loads. Touch and step hazards abound at electrical substations. Pipelines can traverse over hilly/mountainous areas where slopes need to be stabilized after construction is complete. As in all construction projects, stormwater needs to be managed. Presto Geosystems can provide cost-effective, low-maintenance, quality solutions for all of these potential issues using our GEOWEB® 3D Soil Stabilization System (Geocells) and GEOTERRA® Construction Mats. This webinar will explore the solutions and services that are available through Presto. Learning Objectives: • Learn about the development of geocell technology, the general applications where it can be used, and different installation accessories available. • Understand how geocells can be useful in energy sector applications, specifically in load support, channel protection, and slope protection. • Learn how geocells can eliminate touch and step hazards while still providing stable work surfaces. • Gain an understanding of the variety of applications GEOTERRA mats can be used for on construction sites–temporary and permanent use. • Learn about successful energy projects using the GEOWEB geocells… Read more »
