The Challenge

A rapid build retaining wall solution was required to cut down the construction programme.

House builders are experiencing extraordinary pressure to meet targets despite the shortage of materials and skilled labour. Contractors are faced with incredibly tight construction programmes which are difficult to deliver on.

This challenge is prevalent throughout GB and Ireland, and the case is no different on Bushby Fields Housing Development in Leicestershire. Contractor P Hughes explored every opportunity to claw back on their construction programme, without compromising quality, sustainability, health or safety on the Bloor Homes site.

When considering retaining wall options, P Hughes first considered traditional masonry walling. But as skilled brick layers are in short supply and masonry walls are slow to build, they were open to alternatives.

The Solution

Secura Grand was selected as it is readily available, quick to install and doesn’t require skilled labour.

Tobermore is proud to have supplied their Secura Grand Segmental Retaining Wall System to the Bushby Fields Housing Development. Secura Grand is used in the attractive colour Slate to prevent sloping site issues as well as creating a more efficient use of land. Secura offered a cost-effective mortar-free solution which promised a fast and easy installation process.

"We chose Tobermore’s Secura Grand firstly to cut down on our programme on site, then we saw the cost benefits. We found it cheaper and better looking than masonry walls. Tobermore provided us with design and technical support including pre-lim designs and fully indemnified retaining wall designs. Ordering through Keyline was straightforward. We are now very confident installing the system. Secura is perfect for housing applications, we are extremely happy with the quality and final look of the product. We are keen to use Secura on more sites going forward."
