ABG has 30 years experience of utilising geosynthetics to enable projects to be built quicker, cheaper, more sustainably or even built at all.

Many of those solutions were innovative and are still new to some Engineers, Architects, Quantity Surveyors and Planners. Whether your project is ordinary or out of the ordinary, we will be pleased to offer advice and assistance.

Below are a selection of case studies of projects where ABG products have been used to provide solutions to various civil engineering, landscaping and building applications. Applications include containment, drainage, separation, reinforcement, erosion control, retaining walls, stabilisation, protection and SuDS.
