Designs for StoneTerra gravity retaining walls

On Thursday last we visited two sites in County Cork where StoneTerra modular block gravity retaining walls we had carried out design for were under construction. The first site was part of the Bandon Flood Relief Scheme, where a StoneTerra wall was retaining a river bank, and the second site was a new Topaz service station near Fermoy, where the levelling pad was just being installed ahead of the placing of the blocks.



We also visited two sites where geogrid was being used as reinforcement in other StoneTerra structures, allowing for wall heights in excess of that possible using gravity retaining wall design principles.



All four projects were progressing well and we were again impressed with the speed and efficiency of installation possible with the StoneTerra system, as well as the aesthetic finish of the blocks.
