Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are usually employed to hold-back (retain) earth on sloping sites. They can be constructed in many different forms from a wide variety of materials. Common construction methods include:

  • Timber (coppers log) Retaining walls
  • Interlocking block gravity retaining walls
  • Reinforced concrete block cantelever retaining walls. (often called 'besser block' walls)
  • Terraced walls

Most Councils require that any retaining wall over 1m high (and in some cases less) be designed by a suitably qualified engineer. P.K Civil & Structural Engineering P/L  can engineer your retaining wall to suit your needs and satisfy council requirements.
