Structural Repairs to Incorrectly Designed Structural Retaining Wall

Cinamon Building Solutions 

Your house is your biggest asset.


IT IS AN EXPENSIVE EXERCISE, WHEN YOU HAVE BUILDING WORK DONE, AND IT IS NOT DONE PROPERLY.
WHEN EVERY CORNER IS CUT, DISASTER AWAITS


Here is a retaining wall in Gordon’s Bay that simply toppled over. It was under designed and built to fail unfortunately a year or two down the road. Now the cost is to demolish, remove, design to proper specification and build. The saving derived at the time probably amounted to 25%. But now its very costly to remove and replace.

THIS PICTURE3 SHOWS THE CURVE IN THE FAILED WALL IN THE PROCESS OF BEING DEMOLISHED.  

Our Solution is shown as follow on pictures

THIS IS THE BACK OF THE WALL WHICH SHOULD HAVE BEEN WATERPROOFED WITH TORCHON AND AN AGRICULTURAL DRAIN TO CATCH AND DIVERT WATER BEHIND THE WALL.
