Retaining Wall Design

Shire Geotechnics are specialists in the design and supervision of retaining walls required for sub-divisions, site stability, development excavations, landscaping, and to create more space for your site.

Prior to designing the wall, Shire Geotechnics will undertake a site investigation to determine the on-site soil conditions, site stability, and where necessary stormwater and groundwater modelling. We then work with our clients to design a cost-effective retaining wall solution that meets project objectives while minimising risk.


Our specialist retaining wall design services include:

  • Timber pole walls.

  • Gabion walls.

  • Soldier/palisade, and barrier pile walls.

  • Assessment of Environmental Effects (AEE) for boundary cuts.

  • WALLAP Analysis.

  • Mechanically stabilised earth walls.

Shire Geotechnics can also project manage the construction of your retaining wall. We partner with professional contractors across Auckland and NZ, supervising the construction and signing off the work. When all works are completed to the satisfactory requirements, we will issue a Producer Statement (PS4) to Council on your behalf.

With more than 20 years’ experience in civil and geotechnical engineering, with Shire you know you are in good hands.
