Property development often requires cut and fill slopes, that consequently need to be stabilised to prevent erosion by the elements. In this case, a new lifestyle and shopping complex in Simons Town was built into a hill in the Dido Valley, leaving several steep and exposed cut slopes in need of stabilisation.
When Dassenberg Retaining Systems, Terraforce Recommended contractor, was approached by Quantity Surveyor, Chris Stumke from CSQS, to form a stable ramp on site, Andre Rheeders, Dassenberg’s CEO, managed to convince the client, Latitude Properties, to use the Terraforce retaining wall system to retain the resulting slopes.
Says Georg Brand, Dassenberg Retaining Systems: “The platform was handed over to us by Civils 2000 late 2017. We then hand excavated the footing and filled it with 25/19 Mpa reinforced concrete. The bottom 3rd of the structure was installed with a double skin of Terraforce L11 blocks, that were also filled with 25/19 Mpa concrete.
Special thanks to Dassenberg Retaining Systems for executing a technically complex job with the usual professional approach and skill.
