Highly aesthetic retaining solution for innovative residential development

28 April 2017


Our client was a developer with a reputation for high quality and aesthetically pleasing solutions in everything they do. On this occasion, they are developing greenfield land for individual sale as well as offering end to end house and land packages. The blocks are built on rolling topographic conditions so it was necessary to level the ground in between individual lots. This typically varies from 500mm – 1200mm.

ModularWalls considered the aesthetic requirements as well as the imposed surcharge loading from soil and close boundary proximity housing. The TerraFirmX retaining panel was selected as the best solution in consultation with the client’s design engineers. TerraFirmX was chosen not only due to its strength relative to other traditional concrete or timber sleeper solutions, but also due to its enhanced aesthetic appeal. With a requirement for traditional timber fencing to be attached to the top of the retaining wall at a later date, ModularWalls designed the structural support beam with a universal fence connector.
