Renowned meat and vegetable suppliers, Butlers Services, were looking to create concrete bunding around its three digestate tanks, as well as a silage clamp and a retaining wall to create a ramp into the bund. In total we installed 300m of precast modular retaining wall panels. Once given the layout and specification required, we put together a full design and installation package for the foundation and retaining walls for the bund and adjoining silage clamp. This included structural calculations, construction drawings and full installation service.

We used these products
For the Silage clamp, we used 3m high Agri-L retaining walls. For the bund walling, 3m high Modular retaining walls were used, with shorter units to form the internal access ramp. In total, over 300m of retaining walls were delivered and installed in 5 days.
Agri L Retaining Wall
The Agri L Retaining walls are designed to meet the high demands of the Agricultural, Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas industries. Installation of the precast units is exceptionally fast, up to 100m per day.View product details >
Modular Retaining Walls
The modular retaining walls, have the most comprehensive range of wall sizes available in the UK; heights range from 500mm to 6m and lengths of 1m to 6m. They also have exceptional concrete strength and finish.View product details >
Advantages of Precast
We have worked closely with the Butler's Services throughout the planning process, providing technical documentation and carrying out full design for the walls and foundation. Due to the location of the bund and close proximity to the main access road for the farm, the wall on one elevation, would not only have to suitable for the containment of the digester tanks should they fail, it would also have to act as a retaining wall for the earth bank supporting the road. Once given the layout and specification required, we put together a full design and installation package for the foundation and retaining walls for the bund and adjoining silage clamp. This included structural calculations, construction drawings and full installation service.
The total length of wall required was in excess of 300m which included an internal ramp into the bund from the road. We estimated that the time required to install the walling would be 1 week. The wall layout had it’s challenges, with varying angels required to form corners and using a combination of modular wall specifications to cope with the various loading’s required and stepped units to for, the walls for the ramp.
