Good structural design of basements must also consider the waterproofing strategy and temporary works required to install the basement. This makes site constraints and the intended use of the basement major considerations in the structural basement design. We often design the below ground temporary works and waterproofing systems associated with forming basements, for this very reason.
Freestanding retaining walls require similar considerations and we like to give the design team and contractor a number of structural options to allow the most advantageous in terms of quality, cost and programme; to be adopted.
Our expertise includes:
• Gravity retaining walls
• Masonry walls both un-reinforced and reinforced
• Reinforced concrete
• Steel sheet piling
• Retaining walls with ground anchors
• Contiguous piled walls
• Secant piled walls
• Walls and basements with incorporated drained cavities and floors
• Use of waterproof concrete and proprietary tanking systems
