Importance of Correct Retaining Wall Design & Construction

When it comes to building your retaining walls, correct design and construction is crucial for its stability, performance, and longevity. These walls retain earth that keeps moving. The lateral pressure caused by the soil and groundwater can make the following potential impact on the walls:

We at Buildaroo are the trusted retaining wall builders in Sydney. We take the time to carefully and skilfully design and construct your retaining wall to deliver a high-performance and longer-lasting result. 

Critical Factors That Affect Retaining Walls

When we design your retaining walls, we consider the following critical factors. These factors have a huge impact on the design and construction of your walls:

1. Drainage

Retaining walls can fail if there is no proper drainage. When water gets absorbed by the soil behind the wall and has no room to move, it causes build-up of pressure behind the wall. When the water keeps building up, the pressure overwhelms the wall’s resistance and causes bulge or collapse. You will have to worry about remaining wall failures whenever there is heavy rainfall.

We can install drain pipes and use granular rock for the base and backfilling. This will allow the water to get drained and the pressure is released.

2. Foundation

The foundation is one of the most important parts of any retaining wall construction project. How the footing and foundation system is built affects the wall’s resistance to the lateral forces. We specialise in designing and building high-resistance foundations that also prevent excessive settling or sinking.

3. Reinforcement

We may also use steel reinforcement bars and similar techniques to tie your wall to the foundation. The factors that affect the type of reinforcements include:
