Retaining Walls for a foundation platform in a spectacular luxury housing complex

retaining-wall_gabions

Our Double twisted gabions® were chosen as the best to contain a land filling in the construction of a foundation platform for a housing complex

During the construction project of the foundation platform of a group of high standing single-family houses in Elche (Alicante), the design and construction of several gravity retaining walls was required to contain the land filling on which the foundation was supposed to lean. Our Double twisted (DT) Gabions® were chosen as the best to execute these walls.

Ocean Sky is the name that receives a high standing single-family complex of houses in Elche (Alicante). During the construction project of the foundation platform, the design and execution of several gravity retaining walls was required to contain the land filling on which the foundation was supposed to lean. The project, also planned to install a zone of planters as the esthetical of the solution was a very important aspect to consider.

The designer, Chamizo Arquitectos S.L, got in touch with A.Bianchini Ingeniero in order to design the retaining walls using double twisted mesh gabions.

In this context, it was proposed to use our DT gabions® in order to execute the retaining walls and at the same achieve an esthetical pleasant solution.

Our gabion baskets are made from high quality steel wire. They are produced in compliance with CPR – Construction Product Regulation 305/2011, having EC marking in compliance with ETA-09/0414. The management and production system is certified in compliance with ISO 9001 (related to the environmental management system).

Installation works were carried out by the end of 2014 by GRUPO OPM, OBRAS PÚBLICAS Y MUROS S.L. 1,200 m3 of DT mesh gabions and 900 m2 of non-woven geotextile MacTex N were supplied and installed.
