Retaining Wall Failure
This retaining wall in Windsor was experiencing extreme failure due to improper foundations paired along with excessive weight and height of the soil it was built on. Failing walls are one of the most common structural issues which we face and ones which we are more than happy to assist our clients with.
Completion Date: 2019
Project Type: Retaining Wall Failure
Location: Windsor, Berkshire
Having the property located on the slope of a hill, as well as having one of its retaining walls not designed up to necessary standard, ended up causing substantial problems for this build. We found the wall to be extremely unstable and moving to quite a great extent. This occurrence is quite common and a structural issue we face on a regular basis. The reason this happens is due to lack of proper foundations, as well as the weight and height of the soil the wall is built on.
The way this type of problem is rectified is by taking down the existing wall entirely and conducting an installation of proper foundations so that a new wall can be built with grater structural strength that the previous damaged wall didn’t hold.
