Onyx Contractors builds these walls to hold back loose ground and stabilise slopes. This then provides useful areas at different levels of elevation which you can use in any number of ways, be it a small planting area, a terrace or even a new building.
Each individual retaining wall is as unique as the site on which we build it. With a distinct purpose to fulfil in a specific environment, your wall will have a make-up and design tailored to your premises and the project you plan to undertake there.
If your site has no access restrictions, and we can safely perform excavations, we install a reinforced concrete wall. In every other case, we build a contiguous piled wall.
The start-to-finish service we provide as your hard landscaping and groundwork contractors includes:
We happily provide free, no-obligation advice, guidance and quotations for retaining walls in Guilford, Farnham, Godalming and all neighbouring areas.
From the outset, Onyx Contractors determines the problem faced on your site. Where older walls already exist, we determine the purpose for failure. This could be a bellying wall holding back an uneven load, a cracked wall with poor foundations or a wall more than 200 years old that is simply reaching the end of its lifespan.
Whether we’re building from scratch or working on an established site, our team focuses on making safe any potential risk. To achieve this, we draw up a design around meticulous structural calculations, all of which we base on information collected from investigating your premises. This process informs us of key information like the type of material the wall will retain, the ground-bearing capacity and the height of the water table.
You can rest assured our groundworks contractors cover all the granular details related to your premises and project, ensuring we deliver results that last long into the future. This includes drainage considerations, as the effective management of ground moisture and surface runoff is vital to maximising the strength and lifespan of retaining walls.
