I need a structural footing design done for a retaining wall made of besser blocks.
I need this to get a permit to build it. There is an easement along the right side (2m) with storm water 1.5 m below. An engineer looked used a probe to find them and told me there shouldn't be any issue to build a footing over them.
I need an affordable quote and well drawn and written up with details of correct depth of the footing and the recommended Australian standards for reinforcing it. Another engineer in Australia wanted a soil sample test done ( $440) which I think is absurd. The soil is undisturbed clay loam. The entire footing will be hand excavated. I want a design for fair price but no BS about a soil test needed. This wall will be well built by myself, an accredited landscape contractor.
