Retaining Walls And Fences
Without an adequate footing a retaining wall is destined to fail. This is why we take extra steps to maintain the integrity of the retaining wall’s structure.
For block walls where an engineer is not required we use the design criteria found in the “Domestic Construction Manual” an example is attached.
For sleeper retaining walls the post hole are at 1200mm apart often to a depth greater than 1500mm.
We don’t take short cuts with retaining walls (They are too expensive to rebuild a second time).
Lockyer Valley Building also specializes in custom built brick fences, we can arrange for infill panels built of aluminium or steel. Or you can organise this yourself.
We also build both colour bond and timber fences.
