Ottery St Mary, East Devon
Heavy storms led to the collapse of a river bank and retaining wall, blocking the water course. We were instructed by an insurance company to carry out works to include stabilising and retaining the bank. We were responsible for full design and detailing of the scheme including schedule for the works. We had to liaise with the Environment Agency to obtain approval for the works and methods of construction.
The design included upper and lower anchored retaining walls with an intermediate earth bank, stabilised using ground anchors and geotextile.
