Gunite Retaining Wall in Altea

The project

Situated in Altea in between Calpe and Benidorm on the Costa Blanca.

This project in Altea logistically was very difficult as the house was on a steep sloping plot with very narrow Access.


The wall was 28m long and 5m high so heavy gauge steel was required…and a lot of it! The poor access meant that we had to crane all materials over the top of the house. The foundations had to be dug out by hand. All the steels were erected against a plastic containment sheet and geo-textile filtration material. Once erected the wall was concreted using projectile concrete, gunite. Part of being a builder in Spain, especially in Altea which has many properties on the hillside, is being able to adapt to the terrain. Once the wall had been concreted we called the crane once again to lift the Micro Piling equipment into position.
