It's not always the case that the plot of land for your project is perfectly flat and level, and that's where retaining structures come in. In instances where a development site slopes or is hilly retaining walls contain soil in its place. Making a site safe to build on and creating man-made elevations that give a project character.
No matter where or why you need a retaining wall, our operatives can help design and implement structures that defy gravity, and provide a solid grounding for soil to bear down on. Using complex mathematical equations to arrive at the exact surface area, trench depths, and height, required to make your retaining wall, strong, stable and safe for years to come.
Our retaining structures extend to all types of wall for underground basement or above ground elevation. Taking into account aesthetics and budget to help our clients achieve a result that doesn't just adhere to practical requirements but looks visually pleasing too. From gravity walls and gabions, to sheet piled, cantilever or crib designs. Our operatives provide tailored solutions that align with your vision and adhere to strict European building regulations.
From installing football pitches and recreational spaces, to changing a site's elevation, feel and flow. We apply soft and hard landscaping techniques to radically transform our clients' developments. Creating the unique character features that give a project life and soul.
A site investigation is the key to unlocking what you can build and where you can build it. Combining soil spot sampling techniques with comprehensive site assessments to determine any historic land contamination and the ground's suitability for development.
From ensuring your project can be delivered to time and to budget, to providing the complex calculations that determine how the construction can be made mechanically sound. Civil engineers use their environmental and structural expertise to bring a building to life.
The first step in any new development, our earthworks prepare the ground for excavation. Stripping away the topsoil, clearing the site of vegetation, removing excess earth (muckaway) and levelling out any unevenness (cut & fill) to make way for groundbreaking to begin.
