Nowadays, land cost is getting higher especially in urban
areas like Kuala Lumpur. A private residential house situated
on a hilly area requires the back slope be steepened by means
of a retaining wall so as to maximize the usable land area
on top of the wall. Nehemiah wall was opted and constructed
along its back boundary with the height of 6.0m and 3.0m slope
on top. The construction of Nehemiah wall was fast and easy
in terms of site mobilization and installation due to the
incremental nature of wall construction. It imposed minimum
disturbance to the neighbourhood. In addition to the economic
point of view, Nehemiah wall provides aesthetically pleasing
finish whereby the combination of plain and "bush hammer"
hexagonal concrete facing panels blend well with the surrounding.
