Retaining Walls

[ Block and Timber ] Bit of everything ] Erosion control ]

Job Description: This client had a sloped block that they wanted a large garage added to. The problem being the slope of the block, for building. With the choices of either retention and fill, or excavate and retain, the client decided being a cyclonic area, excavation would be the better option, allowing some added protection to the shed, and keeping the roller doors facing to the road frontage whilst still being level with the natural ground at the front. It was further decided that the rear retaining wall would be timber, whilst the two side retaining walls should be of a concrete block design to give character to the finished area.
