Retaining wall stabilisation in Hayle

Posted on: September 14th, 2018 by carnoncontracting

A collapsed retaining wall behind the Central Garage in Hayle is currently being stabilised by Carnon Contracting. Appointed by Adrian Nicholls Ltd for the work, the solution was developed by James Lockyear Associates and includes rock anchors and a mesh to stabilise the slope as the collapsed material is removed. A new anchored cast in-situ reinforced ground beam will be constructed upon which a new block wall with granite facing will be built by Adrian Nicholls. The anchors are extended through the new wall, the void behind backfilled with no fines concrete and the drive above resurfaced. The R25 anchors were installed using Carnon Contracting’s CID 80 Marini mast mounted on an 8T excavator. Work on site is due to be completed in October 2018.
