Rockfall Mitigation to protect prestige villa development at Bukit Jambul, Penang


Our reputation and experience lead to Maccaferri Rockfall Barrier being installed to keep occupants safe

To protect a private development, including villas and condominiums, from rock fall hazards we have designed a system to keep the occupants safe. The development is located around a hill in Bukit Jambul, Penang which faces countless rock fall issues. We were introduced by the local authorities to the developer to provide the utmost range of rock fall protection. As a result, we have installed our Rockfall Barrier RB 750 with the height of 3m and the length of 90m.

The Trehaus is a prestige development in Penang constructed by IJM Land Berhad, one of Malaysia’s leading property developers. Inspired by a countryside living concept, The Trehaus consists of 26 semi-detached villas and 46 units of condominiums.

The residential lots are prone to rock fall hazards because the hill side contains both rocks and boulders and a mixture of soil. Our reputation and experience led the local authorities to invite us to come up with a solution.

Unlike other conventional concrete structures, Maccaferri’s rock fall barriers offer flexibility to mitigate rock fall problems and minimize their impact. This equipment is also able to eliminate the potential of flaking debris by impacting two solid materials that could potentially damage the nearby residential lots.

After thorough investigation and studies, 3m x 90m of our Rockfall Barrier RB 750 has been installed on the site. These rock fall barriers are certified and tested so they satisfy the developer’s requirements. We also did on-site supervisions to ensure consistency and good progression during the construction stage.

Don’t hesitate to contact us for any question or doubt.
