This is probably about our fifth wall to be replaced by us at the Hill Crest Christian College. Originally “Old Railway Sleeper” walls were installed. They have done a good job lasting as long as they had. But one by one they are slowly but surely failing all around the original school grounds. The Windsor concrete block has been chosen for its economy and durability in replacing the old walls. The original walls ended up failing primarily due to termite attack. There will be no chance of these new walls failing due to decay.
Unfortunately we had to remove the shrubs in front of the old walls, to fit the new Windsor block retaining walls. They can easily be replanted if required in front of the new walls. As usual we provided the engineer’s design and forms 15 & 16.
We waited until the school holidays when there were no students around for safety reasons. Then we ripped out the old retaining walls and replaced them with new.
