Last month we shared an article from Gary O’Neill on collapsing retaining walls, if you didn’t catch it, you can read it here. Gary has recently published a second part to this article which focuses on gravity retaining walls and describes some different types of retaining wall solutions, such as masonry (unreinforced), concrete, gabions and crib.
The article explains that retaining walls are selected to suit individual ground and site conditions, here at Sava, we wonder if the recent heatwaves are taken into account when designing and building retaining walls in the UK? What do you think? You can read part 2 here.
