Working for clients across Poole, Dorset and the rest of the UK, we specialise in applying earth retention and retaining structures at a variety of construction projects.
Modern retaining walls and structures not only provide structural confidence; they also provide an aesthetically pleasing environment and are able to be combined with other construction processes to suit a range of ground conditions and site requirements.
Methodically applied by our experienced civil engineering design team, our retaining structures and earth retention options can be resolved to dovetail with other forms of piling and ground stabilisation services to form a complete package of work. We specialise in maximising developable space, paying close attention to sustainability and long-term durability.

A wide variety of retaining structure options available
As one of the UK's leading slope stabilisation and retaining structure companies, we offer a comprehensive range of services, providing everything from gravity walls and gabion mesh walls to reinforced soil walls and retaining structures. Our full range includes:
Able to be constructed from masonry units, concrete cribs, mortarless stone, timber or precast facings, our gravity walls are some of the most classic retaining walls on the market. Relying on gravity and a 'batter' setback that leans the structure into the soil to be retained, our gravity walls are filled with free draining stone before being supplemented and further strengthened by installations like soil nailing.
Some of the oldest gravity wall systems, our crib walls are designed and manufactured to wrap around and accommodate unique curvature of the surrounding landscape. Offering exceptional and reliable support at all times, crib walls are a very simple yet effective way of stabilising slopes.
Reinforced Soil Walls
For many, reinforced soil walls are a more viable alternative to the more traditional retaining wall options that are available. Reinforced concrete structures and piled walls can in most instances offer substantial savings in both system cost and construction time and incredible versatility. We specialise in the comprehensive design and installation of a wide variety of reinforced soil wall systems that utilise of combination of soil reinforcement geogrids that are securely connected to attractive facing units. These include dry laid concrete modular facing blocks.
Gabion Mesh Walls
A great way of promoting vegetative growth, rock gabions are wire mesh boxes filled with rough cut quarried stone or a combination of topsoil and stone. The rough stonework and mesh cages form a containment system, where the horizontal component of the self weight of the filled rock gabions act against overturning and shear forces. Designed for durability, our rock gabions and gabion mesh walls are ideal where erosion is a major consideration in stream bank situations.
