Southern Foundations & Piling are renowned local foundation contractors across the UK, offering specialised services for retaining walls for basements near you.

We deal in all simple and deep basements, employing cutting-edge tools and extensive knowledge to work on unstable and unlevelled soil conditions. Our retaining walls offer immense strength to build a robust and durable basement that can resist the surrounding forces from the ground or water.

What Are Retaining Walls?

Retaining walls are a reliable structure used by geotechnical engineers to prevent the soil from sliding, hence ensuring soil stability.

Retaining walls are an excellent solution where the construction design demands a rapid change in ground level in a congested space, and the ground is not stable or strong enough to stand on its own.

They are extremely advantageous in incorporating several storeys underground while building deep basements. They also help to create a safe space to work on or along slopes as it enables to hold water or earth on one side

Advantages of Retaining Walls

  • Helps to reinforce the soil.
  • Increases the functionality of slope areas.
  • Channelises the water flow in certain areas.
  • Enhances the load-bearing capacity of the soil.
  • Can act as a raised terrace to enable planting.
  • Helps prevent erosion from water.
  • Protects against flooding.
  • Helps expedite the development of the space.
  • Prevents the soil from sliding.

Types of Retaining Walls for Basement

Gravity Retaining Walls: These are the conventional types of retaining walls that retain the lateral pressure from the ground/water in the vicinity due to their weights. They have wider bases and sloped faces. These massive walls are made from masonry, brick, blocks, or mass cast-in-situ concrete.

Cantilever Retaining Walls: These are inverted T or L-shaped foundations consisting of a stem and a base slab. They require less space once built and are suitable for retained heights of up to 5m. However, their construction demands temporary support during the construction.

Piled Retaining Walls: Piled retaining walls are a reliable solution to achieve greater depths underground using various piling techniques and methods. Its common types include:

Contiguous Piled Wall: They are a quick and efficient piled wall option. Using CFA or rotatory bored techniques, these piled walls are suitable for projects where the ground table is below the excavation level.

Secant Piled Wall: For the excavation below the groundwater level that demands short-term water retention, secant piled walls are an excellent option.
