Retaining Wall Design

Design Service

We offer a retaining wall design service to ensure your retaining wall or material bay wall work structurally.

We design to BS 8002 Retaining Wall Design. BS 5628 Masonry Design and BS 8110 Structural Concrete Design.

Our Design Process

Our process to design a retaining wall is as follows:

Work out the project scope – What is the wall being designed to do and what are the load cases.

Determine the soil conditions – We need to understand the material that is being retained and the material the structure is sitting on. If the wall is retaining existing soil we need to understand the soils characteristics. Is it a sandy type soil or a clay type soil? What is bearing capacity of the soil the wall is being founded on?

Check for sliding – We will design the wall and carry out a number of checks to ensure the wall works. The first check is to make sure the wall does not slide.

Check overturning – The second check is to make sure the wall does not overturn.

Check bearing capacity – We check the ground bearing capacity can take the loads from the structure.

Complete structural design – Once all the checks are made we then complete the structural design making sure the correct amount of reinforcement and concrete is specified.

Retaining Wall Engineering Service

We can offer the following services:

  • Ground investigation
  • Retaining wall design including calculations
  • Development of working drawings and reinforcement schedules

Every project is different so we can only provide prices from a detailed conversation with you. Good ground conditions data is critical for the correct design of a retaining wall.

Material Bay Wall Design 

We can design material bay walls using  concrete lego blocks and steel columns and concrete panels. For example material bay walls, building walls, fire walls, blast walls and many more. The wall design process is as follows:

  • Set the wall dimensions
  • Set the restraint conditions
  • Apply the loads – Wind, dead, blast other
  • Check the design for failure and adjust the design until it works.

Wall Design Service

We can offer the following services:

  • 2D and 3D drawings of the walls
  • Wall design including calculations
