Frequently Asked Questions
Council Approval. Do I need it to build my retaining wall?
Generally yes you do. It does depend on the hight. If the wall is greater than 1 meter high then yes you do. But it’s important to first check with your local council as there can be variations.
Do I need to organise an engineer’s design for my retaining wall. If yes can you arrange this for me?
Every building project submitted needs an engineer’s design. And yes of course. We can organise the design process. We have a team that we work with closely with us to achieve this.
The building application? Can this also be organised?
Yes we can help. We will organise an engineering associate to sort out the design and relevant forms for the application. Although it will be up to you as the owner of the property to submit the application.
