Bunbury Retaining Walls

Innovative Commercial Retaining Walls to Build

Building Exceptional Retaining Walls for Commercial Project Needs
The primary concern on any project is safety, which can also be one of the most common reasons that you need effective retaining wall solutions where soil and water are stable and can resist erosion. Bunbury Retaining Walls offer Commercial Retaining Walls for business owners, councils and governments throughout Western Australia. Commercial Retaining Walls will serve as a barrier between the structure foundation and surface that will save the area surrounding the commercial sites from any destructions.

Areas where Commercial Retaining Walls can be built

  • Dams
  • Hillside
  • Seawalls
  • Roadway overpasses
  • Other Steep Areas

Retaining walls are extremely useful structures with a wide range of purposes for commercial properties. Well made retaining walls with quality service can make the unusable land usable. Bunbury Retaining Wall builders and consultants will work with you to ensure that the Commercial Retaining Walls are properly designed and installed. They construct Australian standard retaining walls for commercial projects using advanced materials and equipment with effective design considerations. Commercial Retaining Wall buildings are major projects that require structural contractors and consultants to ensure your wall remains strong for years.

Work with Bunbury Retaining Walls

Before they start the construction, their licensed contractors estimate and evaluate the wall dimensions, heights, sizes, slopes, and setback angles which are all dependent on the site’s elevation and grade. They may use a concrete backfill design that minimises excavation while creating a reinforced wall with sufficient sliding and reversing resistance. To add defence against erosion and runoff, drainage system installation is also necessary to reduce pressure from retaining walls and reducing the risk of erosion by controlling the flow of water. They’ll make sure that the wall gives the best support and doesn’t end up causing serious damage to your commercial property. Bunbury Retaining Walls are ready to work with you and walk you through every process.

Variety of Commercial Retaining Walls

Anchored Retaining Walls

Do you want to strengthen large structures or higher walls? Anchored Retaining Walls or tiebacks can stabilise the structure’s stability and help to equip the walls with the required strength against overturning and sliding pressure. They are pinned at both the top and bottom with cables that are anchored in the back of the rock or soil. Anchors are driven into the material and then strengthened, either mechanically or by pouring pressurized concrete into the hole, at the end of the cable. This type of retaining wall can provide extra support to any of the above structures.

✓ Pros

  • Safe and Secure Structure
  • Effective Dimensional Stability
  • Economical Wall Retaining System

Sheet Pile Retaining Walls

Are you planning to construct a temporary or permanent sheet pile in the wall structure? Sheet Pile Retaining Walls are built to support excavation and retain large bending pressure with no disturbance to the surrounding structures. These piles are forced to a depth that is sufficient to counteract the force that is trying to drive over the wall. Sheet Pile Retaining Walls is a thin structure that can be constructed using steel, concrete, vinyl, or wood that is placed directly into the soil and used to provide a temporary or permanent barrier. Permanent sheet pile walls are built to have a long service life with secure and robust interior walls which are generally used in waterfront structures, building wharves, quays and piers. Temporary sheet pile walls are used to prevent cave-ins or secure workers who work in the field.

✓ Pros

  • Thinner in section compared to masonry
  • Immediate load support capacity
  • Suitable for underground structures
  • Support excavation for massive structures
  • Can be reused on other projets

✗ Cons

  • Works only on soft grounds
  • Larger walls need extra anchoring

Cantilever Retaining Walls

Do you want a strong retaining wall that is made of reinforced concrete for commercial wall purposes? Cantilever Retaining Walls are constructed from reinforced concrete, precast concrete, or prestressed concrete. A cantilever retaining wall is designed to handle overturning and usually has an L-shaped concrete foundation below ground. The pressure of the above earth holds the slab down so that the structure cannot move forward. They are typically constructed from concrete or concrete masonry units with a thin stem and a base slab. Contractors ensure that they design and build cantilever retaining walls while considering all failure possibilities. It’s a preferred design for commercial retaining wall projects for its strength and durability.

✓ Pros

  • Work on principles of leverage
  • Their strength resist high loads
  • Appropriate concrete footing
  • Construct unobstructed flexible excavation

✗ Cons

  • Not sufficiently permeable to drainage

Sheet or Bored Pile Walls

Do you want to minimise large excavations and subsequent backfill? Sheet or Bored Pile walls are designed for deep basements, tunnels, underpasses, and other underground structures, particularly those with restricted space and adjacent structures that need support. It is one of the most common, reliable and effective ways in building a solid pile base for any type of building and retaining wall construction. They minimise mass excavation and manage a better control of ground movements and the entry of groundwater. Sheet or Bored Pile Walls function very well on property boundaries and to stabilise landslides or erosion.

✓ Pros

  • Most economic and rapid option
  • Used to support greater loads
  • Overcome underground obstructions
  • Subsequent backfilling and excavation are minimized 

✗ Cons

  • Hard to install in rough soil or boulder grounds

Counterfort Retaining Walls

Counterfort Retaining Wall is a Cantilever Wall but strengthened with Counterforts to resist lateral force. Some of the common materials used for counterfort retaining walls are concrete blocks structure, treated timbers, rocks, poured concrete, and bricks which is ideal for large retaining walls. Counterforts or thin vertical concrete cables are installed to regular intervals and within the wall to help resist high lateral force. The stem and heel slabs are practically secured, and the counterforts bind the slab and base together. They are designed to minimize the soil’s shearing forces and bending moments on the wall. The added concrete will also help to improve the wall’s weight and stabilisation.

✓ Pros

  • Strengthens the heel slab and reduces the bending moment
  • Maintains self-weight stability
  • More economical than Cantilever walls
  • Counterforts are provided as support
