Retaining wall – seawall construction

1If you live on an elevated beach lot and your lot has considerably eroded due to rains and the high tide, a seawall is essential especially if your house is very close to the edge of your elevated lot… After considerable rains and the constant battering of the waves during high tide, you might expect to find your house falling to the edge of a cliff…

A protective wall also known as a retaining wall or more commonly called as a seawall is essential. The seawall protects your lot from further erosion and protects your home from destruction.2

Your seawall have to span long enough to protect your lot and your house. A well designed and well budgeted seawall should last up to 20-30 years before it requires minor maintenance works. If a building is expected to last up to 3 decades, a constantly battered seawall should also last 2-3 decades before repairs become necessary. After that period, you don’t have to replace the entire seawall, but you just need to do some restoration or rehabilitation…

3A well versed architect should be able to design your seawall to fit your budget. Your architect will provide you with options on the best seawall design to fit your budget. Your budget will dictate the kind of materials and methodology in building your seawall and a good architect will be able to design it tough enough to last 2-3 decades depending on your budget range…

Here are a few common designs of seawalls for any type of budget…

CIGIN Construction and Development Corporation

CIGIN Construction and Development Corporation is an AA construction company registered with PCAB and the securities and exchange commission.

CIGIN represents the first names of Engr. Cirilo and Mrs. Gina Undaloc – his wife. CIGIN started as a subcon of Gorones Development Corporation. CIGIN later took on more exciting projects in various areas of Leyte. Later on, it took site development projects for North Town Homes and Residences. The company also had several projects in mountainous baranggays both for government and private institutions.

Engr. Undaloc was quickly noticed by Gorones as a promising asset in the construction industry during his excellent contributions to the successes of the industrial development of MEPZ 2, MCDP 2 projects, trans-central highway in Cebu, and the Bohol circumferential road.

The company through the excellent leadership of Engr. Undaloc quickly became a most sought after company and it was awarded good projects from companies like the APO Cement Corporation, Dykarhoff & Widmann AG (Dwidag), Shimizu Philippines, the Ayala Group of Companies, Dungsung Construction, and the Western Philippines Corporation.

Even during the economic slump of 1997, Undaloc Construction still got projects from both private and government entities. After it’s conceived popularity in the construction industry, the company decided to take on vertical projects.
