They are typically installed prior to one side of the wall being excavated and they are designed specifically to retain earth and often to take a load applied by a structure above too. Unlike ‘secant piled retaining walls’, they do not prevent the ingress of water and can be installed as a single wall or a 2/3 sided box rather than having to be an enclosed 360° construction.
Contig. walls can be designed to be free standing, usually when the retained height is relatively shallow, or with temporary or permanent propping using anchors, props or hydraulic struts.
