River Street, Bassendean

Project Overview

Fortec was engaged by VGD Group to carry out a design and construct package to remedy their existing slope failure.

Fortec had proposed the installation of a A-frame micropile wall and capping beam to protect the existing building from further expansion of the slope failure.

Works were carried out along the Swan River and required specialised equipment due to the restricted working room and sensitive environment.
