Coates Hire required a new depot and storage yard at Glendenning. The proposed development required a gravity wall to be constructed within the northern carpark area and a soil reinforced wall along the western boundary. Christie Civil were awarded the contract and Retaining Solutions was engaged for the design, supply and installation of the Austral Magnumstone and Austral Keystone systems.

The Austral Magnumstone wall was used as an alternative to the previously specified cribwall system. Apart from the appealing aesthetic appearance of Magnumstone, it was also selected due to the robust nature of this system as a gravity wall, achieving heights of up to 4.8m or in combination with Geogrid soil reinforcement up to heights in excess of 10m.
