Retaining Walls

In order to ensure that retaining structures are designed correctly and fit for purpose, the ground they need to retain and its strength characteristics need to be understood.

Ground investigations are routinely undertaken to ascertain the ground and groundwater conditions present beneath and behind proposed retaining walls. Using in-situ and/ or laboratory testing  data, Ruddlesden geotechnical is able to provide material parameters, including density, angle of shearing resistance and cohesion, for their design.

Case Study

Large Retaining Wall, Devon

As part of the redevelopment of an existing large, residential property in Chagford, Devon, a large retaining wall was proposed.
