Timber Crib Wall

Kawaha Point, Rotorua

For a residential client

A local client identified movement in his retaining wall and engaged us to provide advice on replacement. Soon after our initial inspection, the retaining wall failed in heavy rainfall.

Sigma’s planning and engineering teams undertook the replacement project. Initially a temporary wall was designed to retain the driveway so access to the dwelling could be maintained.

In conjunction with contractors, Sigma design a full replacement timber crib wall. This was the ideal solution for the property due to access restraints hindering material transport and high ground water table, preventing bored poles. We managed the project from start to finish, including tendering, managing and inspecting the contract works. A true example of ‘From Concept to Completion’.

The final result was fantastic and fully transformed the front of the property. The crib wall fits great with the natural area and will provide stability to the property for years to come.
