Reinforced Earth India is a private limited company, wholly owned subsidiary of the Soletanche - Freyssinet Group.
Soletanche and Freyssinet, which have complementary expertise share the culture innovation, have come together to form a specialised civil engineering company unrivalled in the world.
The merger will generate not only exchange of technical know how, but also geographical and marketing synergies. This will help to move us to a new level, in terms of our market coverage, knowledge of customer and ability to respond to wider opportunities.
The objective is to achieve higher leverage on well-known, well-regarded brands and making the most through each subsidiary’s local roots.
They are both leaders in the complex techniques that are key links in the construction chain, and the brands are international benchmarks. The expertise dovetails for an example, Freyssinet’s structural engineering capabilities with Soletanche’s capabilities in technical foundations to better meet challenge of innovation involved in building a bridge.
Being a subsidiary company of Soletanche and Freyssinet Group – Reinforced Earth India becomes one of the leaders in this field of activities.
The main activities of the company are Reinforced Earth®and TechSpan®(precast arch structure). Besides, there are other precast products available. The products ensure high quality and safety standards, long–term performance and durability, low risks/economic ramifications and sustainable technologies. We also take up MSE wall rehabilitation programmes and provide hybrid engineering solutions to challenging projects. Precast box structures (Techbox) and Terranail (Shored Reinforced Earth Walls) will be our new areas of activities with high end technical superiority.
Reinforced Earth India participates in projects that involve design and build solutions, except direct civil works. The business model evolves around providing value-added services through effective design and construction management. Special forms, accessories and bespoke supplies are delivered to the projects. Our experienced engineers and technicians supervise the activities like precasting and erection and sometimes execute the works; with infrastructure, plant, machinery and materials (concrete and rebar) support form the EPC contractor.
Reinforced Earth India, concentrates mainly on the site engineering, operations management, and construction supervision. The organization strengths are built around strong values and principles with prime focus on quality, delivery, and customer satisfaction.
Reinforced Earth India is committed to improve the environment protection of construction sites. It has a strong safety, health and risk prevention policy and dedicated towards a strong corporate social responsibility.
Reinforced Earth® A Major Innovation
Reinforced Earth is recognized as a major innovation in the field of civil engineering. Owners, engineers and contractors worldwide, make use of it for the construction of many types of structures, predominantly walls and bridge abutments.
The merging of the Reinforced Earth and Freyssinet Groups in 1998 further widens the range of materials and applications and confirms the group as the world leader of soil reinforcement, both metallic and synthetic. The group is present in all five continents, and benefits from both local experience and worldwide expertise.
The Reinforced Earth Group has developed several techniques that have advantages in common:
- Long service life due to use of reliable and durable materials
- Considerable savings in both construction time and material costs
- Aesthetically pleasing structures that blend with the environment.
- Roadway structures
- Railway structures
- Industrial and protective structures
- Marine river structures
Indian infrastructure is growing in all its segments. We are strongly present in the highway development projects and exploring the possibility to use our expertise and technology in other areas like hydraulic/ marine applications in ports, railways, hills etc. We intend to extend our technical superiority to all the possible segments of Indian infrastructure.
We have executed several critical projects across India and currently involved with many national projects. Our dedicated professionals are committed to excellence that makes every project unique in nature. We have the privilege to mention a few projects of national importance such as the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway project that was a challenging task considering the distance and time frame.
The company has also completed the Reinforced Earth Structures of 45,000sqm at Bangalore International Airport in a record time. In Bangalore also, we have executed the longest Reinforced Earth Structure for the Outer Ring Road.
In Delhi, the Mukarba Chowk, was extremely critical as far as design and constructions were concerned. The Guru Teg Bahadur Smarak, a monument for the Sikh Guru was a unique blend of aesthetics and civil engineering.
We are at present involved in various national infrastructure projects in the country and have recently been awarded the construction of Reinforced Earth Structures for Badarpur Elevated BOT Road project, which will be a boon to the travelers between Delhi and Faridabad and beyond. We are involved in many projects in different parts of the country like Bangalore Metro Railway, Nagpur–Raipur Section of NH-6, C-10, C-11, C-13, C-14 and C-15 Packages in Andhra Pradesh, Signature Bridge– Wazirabad in Delhi, and so on.
Freyssinet Menard India Private Limited
Solatanche – Freyssinet group also have another subsidiary in India named Freyssinet Menard India Pvt. Ltd. The FMI focuses on its strengths in the fields of pre-stressing, stay cables, structural fittings and repair techniques.
The company has been currently executing two hi-tech civil engineering projects in India. First being the stay cable bridges over river Chambal in Rajasthan, when finishes the bridges will ease the congestion on the East–West corridor (NH 76). FMI has been contracted for the cables stayed bridge with a total length of 750m and a Central Span of 350m. FMI’s involvement is in delivering and installing the pre-stressing together with cable stays.
The second project is unique and first of its kind in the world. The supplying and installing of the Cohestrand Cables®for the roof of Dr. S.P. Mukherjee stadium that will hold the swimming competitions during the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi. The designs and the installations demanded highest engineering skills and FMI’s professional took the challenge and innovate special civil engineering processes.
