This residential subdivision project in Tauranga had Redi-Rock blocks specified as the retaining solution for a culvert application. A major facor in Redi-Rock’s selection was it’s ability to last hundreds of years and is a durable solution. Whilst we were visiting the site, the discussion turned to the large timber walls above us. What happens when the timber walls fail / rot or reach the end of the 50 year durability requirement under the building code? How will the walls be replaced when there are houses built on these sections and there is no room? Costs? Who pays? No such worries once Redi-Rock is installed!
