Preplanning with Product Parameters

Techo-Bloc

In this example, Paver Pete demonstrates how preplanning the construction of hardscape elements, before incorporating them into a design, can save both time and money. 

 



In the above example, Pete used the Mini-Creta wall and omitted the B* units (straight/jumper) from that section of the wall, saving them for other parts of the project.

 

This resulted in a 5’1” radius that could be achieved without cuts.

 The table found on pages 98-99 of Volume 17 of the Techo-Spec: Hardscaper’s Handbook presents the turning radius of each of our wall products.

The fewer cuts that are required on a job will  translate into  productivity gains that help your bottom line.

Another tip, while on the subject of freestanding seat walls, is adhesion. Here, Paver Pete shows us when to glue walls versus when adhesives are a bad idea.

 

Segmental Retaining Wall construction can be tricky. With different base types, drainage solutions and geotechnical reinforcement, it can be easy to get confused. We’re here to help.

This year we’ll be tackling an 8’ tall G-Force wall with geogrid, base and drainage challenges!
