Problema

Former Clooney Army Base in Derry / Londonderry, Northern  Ireland was to become a new education campus for Foyle   College and Ebrington Primary School and Nursery School.   Heron Brothers were the successful contractor and   appointed Maccaferri to design and supply the retaining walls required on-site. 

A total of 6nr retaining walls were required across the 38- acre site. The £27m project on the site of the former   Clooney Army base would allow for the amalgamation of   Foyle College and Ebrington Primary School and Nursey on   one site. 

The retaining walls were needed to overcome differences in   site levels of up to 5m and at a maximum would reach a   length of up to 195m. The retaining walls would provide the   necessary retention to allow for the construction of sports   pitches, playing fields and walkways.     

Solución

Maccaferri proposed the use of the MacWall Vertica 4°  Segmental Block Retaining Wall System. The 4° batter of   this system creates an almost vertical front face and allows   for space at both the toe and top of the wall to be   maximised. The 4° blocks also have an “Anticlimb”   characteristic and therefore were ideal for use within this   education campus.
