A team of engineers and designers, can advise on all aspects of a project from outline design through to final value engineering.
From initial design through to on-site logistics, all aspects of the Somercotes operation meet the most exacting quality standards. These are maintained by Bison’s own in-house Quality Inspectors, and audited by external certification bodies.

The standard range of Bison Precast retaining walls are available from stock in seven different heights. Each unit is designed to be loaded up from either side and can retain material level with the top of the wall including a surcharge or a sloping backfill from the top of the unit without any surcharge. The walls rely on holding down bolts to resist overturning moments.

The standard range is available from stock. However, bespoke units offering variation in height, width, loading and accommodation of weep-holes or pipe openings can be provided.
