Retaining Walls

There are many types of retaining wall and other retaining techniques. Our highly skilled and qualified engineers are able to provide you with the best solution based on your individual situation.


Retaining walls are needed to retain soils at different levels where there is insufficient space to allow stable slopes.

Retaining walls greater than 1m high should be designed by a civil or structural engineer who is familiar with site and ground conditions.
