Continuing our quest for “excellence in civil construction”, we are now the proud Earth Awards Category 1 Winner 2014. (more…)

Concrib Concrete Sleeper Walls used in NSW development

Posted on: July 11th, 2013

Mirvac chose Concrib’s sleeper wall system for Saddlers Ridge – its latest planned community in Gilleston Heights near Maitland, NSW. Saddlers Ridge was one of Mirvac’s premium developments, and they wanted to present its blocks near flat and ready for building.

The development was at the foot of the Hunter Valley, and would offer the exclusive lifestyle of a country atmosphere and spectacular rural outlook, with all the amenities of a town. Mirvac needed a retaining wall system that would maximise land value, be aesthetically pleasing and meet the design life standards for residential retaining wall systems. Concrete sleeper walls ticked all the right boxes.

Concrib provided the ideal solution for Saddlers Ridge

Concrib was engaged by the contractor Robson Civil to supply and install a vertical cantilever concrete sleeper wall system. 600 square metres of walling was installed, which reached a height of 2 metres.

Concrib’s concrete sleeper walls were suited to the development for a number of reasons:

  • The system’s narrow construction footprint used minimal space and kept the value of this pristine land as high as possible.
  • The concrete sleeper wall’s elegant design and wood grain finish option meant the wall blended seamlessly with the land and contributed to the rural feel.
  • The wall meets AS4678, the Australian Standard for Earth Retaining Structures, which calls for residential retaining walls to have a design life of at least 60 years.

Fencing requirements were made simple with Concrib’s standard ‘fence connection’. Galvanised posts with lengths of steel extending at the tops meant the fence posts above the wall were easily attached.

Engineered retaining wall that looks great and a lasts a lifetime

Concrib’s sleeper wall system combines the aesthetics of a wood grain finish with the strength and durability of concrete. Unlike a wooden wall, it is termite free and will never rot.

Once in place the sleeper retaining walls can be painted in a wide variety of colours. We use a highly resistant “Shieldcoat” concrete sealant to ensure our sleeper walls remain aesthetically pleasing for years to come.
