Sunnymead Dr, La Mirada, CA
This project is interesting because it demonstrates the danger of structures that are illegally built. The owner purchased their home with an illegal retaining wall. It was built illegally without a permit. After a rain storm, water pressure built up behind it and it collapsed. The orange plastic shows the amateur design of an attempted anchored retaining wall. This wall had nothing interlocking the blocks so it collapsed. Luckily no one got hurt. Our company was called to design a retaining wall legally and professionally.
Our engineer made calculations and designed a retaining wall that will provide safety to the owner and their family. Plans were submitted and approved. This project is ready for construction. A 55 linear foot retaining wall will be built with permits and as engineered plans indicate.
