Compliance with New Zealand Building Law

Our team ensures stringent compliance with laws and regulations of building retaining walls in New Zealand. Under Building Act 2004 and Building Code, construction projects including retaining walls must observe specific regulations in terms of height, engineering requirements, drainage considerations, and soil stability.

We are more than happy to provide direction in terms of standard retaining walls. Working with us helps you ensure that your project meets all legal requirements. We can also help with permits and approvals before commencing construction if necessary. The following are essential requirements for Wellington retaining walls.

  • Retaining walls exceeding 1.5 meters in height requires building consent from the local council
  • The design must be robust enough to withstand pressures from the soil and other loads like trucks passing by
