The foundation is that part of the structure whose function is to adequately convey the loads of the structure to the ground and provide a stable support system.

The foundation will be well designed if it adequately fulfills its double function, stability and resistance, controlling two limit states namely service conditions and failure failure conditions.

These two fault conditions are called boundary states, because they both determine whether a foundation serves or not.

Eternal Rock Construction Inc is highly specialized in the construction or repair of a retaining wall.

The retaining walls are constructive elements that fulfill the function of enclosure, generally supporting the horizontal efforts produced by the thrust of earth. In other types of construction, they are used to contain water or other liquids in the case of deposits.

A retaining wall not only supports the horizontal thrust transmitted by the ground, it must also receive the vertical forces transmitted to pillars, load walls and slabs that support them. Most of the retaining walls are constructed of reinforced concrete, fulfilling the function of supporting the ground thrust, generally in dismounts or embankments, avoiding the collapse and supporting the slope.

Please feel free to look at examples of our most recent works

Regardless of how you travel, you’re a pedestrian at some point for nearly every trip you take. In Portland we have 2,504 miles of sidewalks and 37,782 corners.

For Portlanders with a physical disability, streets without a curb ramp present significant barriers to travel and make it challenging simply to cross the street. Curb ramps make it easier for others using the sidewalk, such as seniors, children, parents with strollers and people with shopping carts or rolling suitcases. Curb ramps add to a more pleasant pedestrian environment.

we are committed to help people with disabilities and making it easier for others to walk and roll along Portland’s sidewalks and street crossings. Rebuilding corners to provide curb ramps is one significant way the City provides access for people who use wheelchairs and other mobility devices in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA).
