Commercial retaining walls in Brisbane

While it is one of our “simplest” services, retaining walls are our most popular. Retaining walls are designed and constructed to hold the lateral pressure of soil or hold back soil materials. They are both effective and economical, solving even the most complex of soil stability problems.

Retaining walls are commonly used in mining and construction projects, however over the last few decades, they have become popular for enhancing the landscaping.

Ground Stabilisation Systems has been called upon for retaining walls in Brisbane for more than 15 years. For all sizes of commercial projects, we will always complete a detailed analysis of the geology in the area, ensuring the pressures on a proposed retaining wall are accounted for in the planning stage. 

From this analysis, we can determine what is the best and most cost-effective retaining wall solution for your needs. 

Our team has worked with local businesses, councils and governments across Australia, including in the Brisbane area. We have an in-depth understanding of the geology in the area, meaning we have the knowledge and skills required to build an effective retaining wall — no matter how complex or challenging the area may be.

We will ensure your new retaining wall has a stable foundation to handle the inherent pressures of soil and/or water.

Our use of shotcrete in Brisbane

Among our service offerings, shotcrete is one of the most popular and effective techniques. In Australia, shotcrete (or mock rock) is applied when regular concrete is not practical or possible including areas in high or inaccessible places. 

Shotcrete has become a standard construction tool and is often used for mining and in shoring where there is an open excavation. It is also regularly used for ground stabilisation and tunnelling. 

As a technique, shotcrete is simple yet practical. Using a large hose, we spray concrete pneumatically at a high velocity onto a surface.

A variety of final finishes can be achieved using shotcrete including gun, screed, wood float, sponge, steel trowel and architectural mock rock. With this in mind, shotcrete has become more popular in domestic settings, more so in very hilly areas of Australia.

However, shotcrete is more commonly used in the following projects: 

  • Ground/ slope stabilisation and retaining walls
  • Rock stabilisation in areas with steep slopes
  • Erosion control
  • Anchored retaining walls
  • Temporary shoring for builders
  • Drainage and water flow control under buildings
  • Imitation rock walls.

While shotcrete can save a lot of time in a stabilisation or remediation project, it is also a high-risk form of construction and must be administered by an experienced team like Ground Stabilisation Systems. 

It is important that the site is well prepared and researched before shotcrete is applied to any surface. Contact our team for shotcrete in Brisbane — we will complete a site inspection to ensure shotcrete is the safest and most effective solution for your project.
