Our Client Testimonials
Kind words from some recent clients!
I have recently discovered Engineered Retaining Blocks and I would never go back. My clients couldn’t be happier with the end result of the retaining walls that I built for them. The overall look and feel of the end result is far more polished than other materials that I’ve worked with. I couldn’t be happier with my choice to use Engineered Retaining Blocks!
We have recently engaged Engineered Retaining Blocks to supply blocks on some of our larger scale industrial projects. Our dealings with Julian and his team have been nothing short of exceptional and the retaining blocks themselves have proven to be an excellent choice on our recent projects. We will continue to use Engineered Retaining Blocks.
Retaining Wall Blocks vs Sandstone Blocks Besser Blocks and Concrete Sleepers
Engineered Retaining Blocks are situated in Yatala, Brisbane, and we manufacture engineered retaining blocks, for use in building retaining walls. We have been in the retaining wall industry since 1986 back then the market was only requiring rocks and boulders with only a select few companies experienced enough to work the rock to a reasonable straight wall. We were one of the few pioneers of the retaining wall industry, since then we have identified an escalating market trend for a more formal and user friendly retaining wall product. There are sandstone blocks available but most of them are not precise in sizing or quality and if you can acquire perfect sizing they will be far too expensive (up To Triple our prices at times ). We have built a solid and reputable business based on trust and honesty, we strive to create the absolute best value for all our clients big or small. Our engineered retaining wall blocks are a more economical and effective substitute for sandstone blocks, concrete sleepers, besser blocks and link blocks, as they’re easier to use, lift and transport, and are more cost-effective.
Saving you time and money
Our retaining wall blocks are a unique, medium sized block that are perfect for all large retaining wall projects and also on small sized plots of land because they take up less space. They’re also handy for limited access jobs as well because of their size and weight. Due to the weight difference in comparison to sandstone blocks, a larger load of our blocks can be transported on a flatbed truck, which also means that smaller equipment can be used during retaining wall construction. Hence, one of the reasons our retaining wall blocks save you money on transportation, labour and machinery.
When building with concrete sleepers or besser block walls over a rock surface, the rock needs to be drilled or excavated quite deeply. This creates extra time spent on the job with the added expense of equipment, rockbreakers labour and time. However, our engineered retaining wall blocks can easily be placed directly over the rock without any additional labour required, therefore saving time and money.
