Retaining Structures

Where a sharp change in ground elevation is required a retaining wall is normally used. Using the latest design software our specialist geotechnical engineers can design all manner of retaining walls, including gravity, cantilever, sheet piling, anchored, reinforced earth, gabion, and crib. All the design is done to current British Standards and Eurocode EC7.
