Innovative solutions for retaining walls

We are not restricted to one system but can provide the most suitable system for a particular scheme

Design

All detailed design is carried out by our team of chartered and graduate engineers which is headed by our technical director, Dr David Marrs.

Design standards appropriate to the application are applied. These include British and European standards together with more specific guidance such as the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges. All designs are independently checked by one of our experienced chartered engineers and backed by professional indemnity insurance.

In summary then:

  • Chartered Engineers: All our changes are signed off by chartered engineers.
  • Professional Indemnity: We maintain full professional indemnity cover. Details can be provided.
  • Autocad Drawings: We accept layouts electronically and prepare Autocad drawings for the initial contract and again when built.
  • "No foal no fee": We do not charge separately for design but obtain our profit from our full-cycle involvement.
  • TAS approvals: We regularly obtain TAS approvals.
  • Geotechnical Approval: When requested we can obtain geotechnical approval.

Supply

All our products have been designed or selected as best in class.

We ensure constant feedback between our design department and our experiences on site. This ensures our products comply with all relevant legislation and standards. Because we are not restricted to one system we can supply the most appropriate retaining solution for any given application.
