Slope Stabilisation and Retaining Wall at Boscastle for the National Trust

Posted on: May 20th, 2015 by carnoncontracting

A structurally unstable slope posing a risk to adjacent listed residential properties belonging to the National Trust has been successfully stabilised by Carnon Contracting.

The difficult site, requiring crane access, along with the steep nature of the slope required the installation of hand-drilled mini piles and anchors just to enable the construction of an elevated drilling platform.

Once the platform was established, the full stabilisation piles and anchors could be installed.  The 22m-long slope was then completed with a natural Cornish stone faced retaining wall.  The contract in Boscastle was completed on budget for our clients the National Trust.
