Please provide the street address of the project site so that we can perform online searches on the property and provide you with the best advice from the start.
When installing a retaining wall there are a few building and council laws you need to abide by, especially concerning the proximity of the wall to other structures and the height of the wall itself. These factors will generally determine whether you will require engineering, council building approval, certification or a council relaxation.
Access points and the size of them, to the project area, can determine what machinery we can use to carry out your project and ultimatley determine what kind of material we can use.
Hint: include height, length, sqm, location on the site. If you have building/ engineering plans please attach them below.
