Slopeloc at Barratts Homes, Wyke

The recent completion of a large Slopeloc project has shown the versatility of this product and its ability to provide an aesthetic alternative to other more popular retaining wall solutions. The scheme at Wyke near Bradford was constructed by specialist contractors Thomas Ben and was designed by PaSCoE, a engineering consultancy based in Preston. The Slopeloc wall forms a visually appealing entrance to a new Barratts Homes Site, covering an expanse of some 270m² and rising to almost 4m high in places. The wall features a gradual curve as the entrance to the new development cuts into the hillside, with the Slopeloc being used to face up the soil nailed slope. This is the second time the product has been used on a Barratts site with a smaller amount having been constructed at Bognor Regis around 18 months ago. Commenting on the completed wall, Anderton’ s Civils Manager, Tim Fields, stated “this shows the flexibility of this product to produce functional and visually stunning walls, whilst being straightforward and simple to construct”.
