I got a call for a retaining wall in a lake community yesterday. Went and looked at it today. Worse than i could imagained! In this lake, the houses are extremely tight and there are alot of hills! Well this guy has a driveway that is about 25 wide and 20 deep. It happens to be held up by a rotted 6 ft tall rail road tie wall. Things are so tight that i will have to excvate out between 50-60 yards of material and have it hauled right out of there since there will be no where to store it on site. Than as i build the wall i wil have to have soil trucked back in 10 yard intervals proably. Then i have to figure out how to get 500 block down to the wall base. It looks like i can make it down the steep slope on the right side of the driveway with a tracked dingo or mt but i will not be able to bring many down at a time. Hell, it is even a engineering nightmare. You have the surcharge from the driveway to deal with, then a guard rail and some kind of drain to address. Yes this wall will be engineered! Its going to be a tough job, but the customer will pay for the BS and all the extra deliverys i am going to need. I pretty much have all the logistics figured out. As long as i only need to do 8 ft grid it shouldn't be to bad. Any more and i won't have any driveway space to stack material! Anyone have any good stories about tight space jobs?
