Concrete retaining wall

This project involved the building of a 5ft concrete retaining wall, utilising a concrete pump. This is part of an on-going project to create a large garage with office space above. The wall will have the dual purpose of supporting the surrounding ground which is at a higher level, and also provide a foundation for the building of the blockwork to the wall plate. We were asked by the owners of the property to create a pond following their ideas to create a interesting design. At its deepest point, the pond was over 1200mm deep with a shelf at 750 deep. 64 tons of soil and subbase was removed, and the pond will be fitted with a liner and have a decking surround.
