Like with every construction site, safety is paramount. But to go another step further and incorporate successful permanent safety features in the structure of the build is always desirable.
Our current project just outside of Melbourne in Sunbury required a large amount of retaining walls across the residential / commercial site.
With the positioning of the childcare facility at the front of the site, there was a requirement for retaining walls situated behind the facility due to the positioning of the residential properties behind the facility. As there is a 6m fall on this premises, it led to the residential properties being elevated substantially higher than the childcare facility below.
Whilst meeting the standard retaining wall requirements, G&P incorporated a cast concrete vehicular retaining wall to be position behind the childcare facility to ensure no motor vehicles were able to impact the childcare facility from the above level.
