These available services fulfil a range of expectations from local councils and safety requirements, as discussed below.
First the team at Icon Walls enquires with your local council or authority to see if your project requires planning approval. Regulations differ between councils and are usually related to drainage and wall height. We consult with local councils on the behalf of our clients.
Your local authority may require drawings of the site plan, and this may include the structural details of the project. The authority may also need proof of the consultant’s certification of design. Our highly professional and qualified consultants specialise in concrete retaining wall design and have a profound knowledge of council requirements and policies.
1. Wall height.
2. Soil type.
3. Loads above and behind the retaining wall, eg parked cars.
4. Sloping land below and/or above the retaining wall.
Engineering advice is a necessary for any retaining wall of a height greater than 600mm. Drainage is one of the main considerations for retaining walls. Water cannot build up behind the walls, as they have been designed to withstand pressure from soil which is a lot lower than the hydrostatic pressure that water exerts. Our professional consultants and structural engineers will ensure that your retaining is built properly and meets the highest safety standards.
