On a slightly elevated south-western location in Wettswil am Albis, eight individual condominiums have been built, which meet the highest standards in terms of living quality.
On a slightly elevated south-western location in Wettswil am Albis, eight individual condominiums were built, which meet the highest standards in terms of living quality. The building was designed in such a way that each apartment offers a beautiful view of the "Säuliamt". Due to the steep slope, the basement and the three residential floors were built across the garage floor into the slope.
In order to provide permanent support for the slope on the hillside, the first step was to examine various options. A retaining wall made of in-situ concrete was out of the question for all those involved. A terraced area next to a concrete wall also seemed unattractive. As a contractor's option, WALO constructed the embankment using the SYTEC TerraMur 2 system.
This is a vegetated retaining wall system, which was constructed using galvanized formwork grids, with pre-mounted erosion protection. A node-stiff geogrid was used for horizontal anchorage. The backfill was made with wall gravel I, resulting in the highest customer satisfaction.
We appreciate your interest in the WALO Group and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
