Booked with us by the builder, retaining wall inspections are done prior to backfilling behind the wall and may also be done prior to concrete footing pour. We either approve the work as is, give a conditional pass (when minor items need resolution prior to certification), or fail the inspection and the work has to be done again.
Our retaining wall inspection involves checking all elements to confirm work has been carried out in accordance with the engineered design, AS4678, and other relevant standards. Checked elements include:
You get information about your inspection right away — even while our inspector is still onsite. Our outcome reports include live markup photos for easy identification of conditional requirements, with all documentation delivered digitally for rapid reports.
With STA, you’re never left in the dark about your appointment time or results. From the initial booking until your certification is issued, we keep you informed at every step of the way.
STA is a one-stop engineer with a service range that delivers three key advantages:
Pre-planning your engineering needs means you won’t have to keep re-booking an engineer when you need a particular service. It creates efficiencies that cut service times and save you money by pulling together the services you’ll need, at a lower overall price.
With all your engineering done by a single organisation, your consultants tap into a deeper knowledge of the site and the project, which leads to high quality outcomes, with more opportunities for innovative solutions.
While STA always takes legal responsibility for its engineering designs, an up-front engineering services package makes it easier to trust our work with a strong mutual commitment, and reduced risk of potential interruption or delay.
