Under Pressure!!! A Look Back To Last May.

Under pressure..sleeper retaining wall – a nail-biting project but well worth the effort!

sleeper retaining wall

Picture this…..to the side of the clients house a very large/high bank topped with a fence….slightly beyond the fence and on top of the bank – their neighbour!!!!!

The brief, to take down the existing and very damaged concrete wall and install an oak sleeper retainer set in steel

No pressure then!! The boys start breaking away the thick concrete to expose just earth and clay, they dig the deepest of footings to hold the heavy duty steels that the sleepers will sit in, they pour of the strongest of concrete mixes – thank goodness they know what they’re doing!

Finally the steel uprights are in – followed in time by the installation of solid oak sleepers, with the finishing touch of a coat of grey to the steels to blend in with the house we produced a contemporary style that will certainly withstand the test of time
