Phi Group's Leeds office have completed their massive retaining wall project in Humberside, working for Buckingham Group Contracting.

The £120m extension to Wren Kitchens manufacturing facility in Barton Upon Humber, will nearly double its size and is an important project for the area.

In total, Phi constructed eight retaining walls totalling more than 1.6km in length and retaining up to 7.0m in height. Five of those used the BBA Certified Permacrib timber crib system, which has a design life of 60 years and is very quick to construct. They have a face area of 5,500m2 and and a length of 1,400 metres.

Phi Group also built 615m3 of gabion baskets on site, totalling 160 metres in length,  while our colleagues at Keller installed a soil nailed structure up to 7.0m high - a great example of how Keller can provide multiple solutions, whether it be retaining walls, piling, ground improvement or slope stabilisation.

Mick Ransom, Buckingham Group's Senior Project Manager commented:  "We’re very impressed with your overall performance."
