Australian Retaining Walls were called to this Ashmore, Gold Coast Qld address to assist our client with an extension to their narrow courtyard at the side of the house. On closer inspection, Australian Retaining Walls advised that a Besser concrete block wall with a concrete slab and fence would be the best option for our client.
An excavator was recruited and work could begin. The laser was set up and the desired levels for construction were found and dug out. Demolition of the old wall and fence followed and Australian Retaining Walls were almost ready to begin construction of this Besser concrete block wall with concrete slab and fence. An extremely steep driveway combined with a summer downpour resulted in all materials having to be brought in by hand and wheelbarrow but eventually work got underway.
First step was to pour a footing. Using a combination of concrete and steel trench mesh a suitable result was achieved. When the concrete footing had set building could begin. Using wall ties and steel for reinforcement the Besser concrete block wall was swiftly completed. Next up was pouring the concrete slab. After the area was suitably prepared Australian Retaining Walls brought in the concrete truck and pump for the pour.
When the concrete slab was dry, the guys at Australian Retaining Walls could then build the block pillars and lay the caps on the Besser concrete block wall.
Finally the new pine fence was installed, matching perfectly with the existing fence. Another satisfied customer for Australian Retaining Walls!
