Retaining wall design

Retaining walls support soil or engineered fill at slopes or angles that the soil or fill would not stand at naturally. Mostly, retaining walls are vertical. We are experienced in the design of many types of retaining wall or retaining structure, including:

  • Gravity retaining walls – concrete, masonry, dry stack concrete, or gabion
  • Semi-gravity retaining walls – cantilever precast or in-situ reinforced concrete walls
  • Reinforced soil walls – concrete faced or wrap around
  • Embedded retaining walls – steel sheet piles or bored concrete piles

We use the latest design codes and specialist geotechnical design software to ensure our designs are robust yet economical. Retaining solutions are designed as permanent works or temporary works as required. Certification can be issued for either case as appropriate for the particular project.
