Retaining Wall Design

Tiaki Engineering carried out design and construction monitoring for a mechanically stabilised earth wall (MSE wall) for a residential building platform in Whakatane. An anchored timber pole wall had been designed to retain 2.5m on sloping ground below the building platform. Tiaki carried out a review of alternative options for the wall and recommended an MSE wall as a more cost efficient and less intrusive structure. The MSE wall was constructed by Waiotahi Contractors and resulted in a 50% cost saving for the Client when compared to the anchored timber pole wall.
