Retainer Walls – Standing the Test of Time

07 January 2014

The history of building walls is centuries old, as humans have been piling stone atop stone or in the case of retaining walls, block on top of block for thousands of years. While the dry stone technique of piling one stone on top of another was generally used for field enclosures it was also used for dry buildings such as the Itihuatana stone and the ritual buildings at Machu Picchu, which are stunning examples of Inca architecture. And, closer to home indigenous tribes used dry stone wall construction in Southeastern Africa as early as 1350 to 1500AD. As well as perhaps the most famous reminders of man building by placing stone on top of stone; the Great Wall of China, which is the only man made structure that is visible with a naked eye from space. But one can be assured that just as project teams encounter design challenges today, they must pale into comparison with the obstacles that had to be overcome centuries ago.

As building technology has evolved over the centuries retaining walls have become the modern day solution to holding up a bank of earth no matter what you are building. In its simplest terms a retaining wall is an earth dam that is constructed in order to maintain the consistency of the land above and below.

Retainer walls can be as low as a metre high when using as a landscape solution or they can tower several stories. Retainer walls have many and varied applications and are used in anything from the mining industry to road construction when making the grade approachable for a highway interchange.
