9.0 Methodology / Procedure


All the activities will take place in a manner that will suit the natural ground conditions and will
allow maximum deployment of equipment. Auxiliary works such as temporary access roads,
maneuvering plateaus, assembly and stockpile areas etc will be also constructed and
maintained in order to ensure easy, safe, unobstructed and well supervised execution of the
works.
The dimensions of Gabions and Gabion Wall will be defined by the design.

1.15. General.
Gabions can be filled either directly in their final position or at a suitable position and then
transported to their final position.

1.16. Foundation and stockpile area preparation.


Prior to commencement of dumping the filling material at a certain location, removal of
obstacles will take place.
The surveyor will give the line in which the gabion wall will be constructed.

airgil@udistinguish.com

The foundation on which the gabions will be placed will be cut or filled and graded to the lines
and grades of the design and drawings. Surface irregularities, loose material, vegetation, and all
foreign matter will be removed from foundation surface area. When fill is required, it will consist
of materials conforming to the specified requirements. Any unsuitable areas of the foundation
will be excavated and replaced with the specified material.
Gabions will not be placed in their final position until the foundation preparation is completed
and the surfaces have been inspected by the engineer or the engineers representative.

1.17. Assembly, Installation and Filling of Gabions


For Assembly, Installation and Filling of Gabions see Appendix 2.

1.18. Inspection
Prior to assembly works, it will be ensured that the correct materials as specified are delivered
to site. Gabions that have been damaged during transportation or during storage on site will be
repaired or disposed.
The foundation of the gabion structure will be inspected to be at the correct grades and levels
as required by design.
A visual inspection of the gabions will be made to ensure the correct fixing of the gabions sides
and during their installation the correct fixing between the adjacent cells. All joints must be tight
and correctly formed.
At each stage of filling, a visual inspection of the gabions will be made to ensure that no large
voids are present.
Inspection will also take place in order to check that the overall line and level of the gabion wall
is acceptable.
Periodic inspection and inspection after severe weather of flood occurrences will be carried out
to ensure the performance of the structure and that no external damage has occurred to the
mesh fabric which would affect the integrity of the structure.

10.0

Work Permit
Necessary work permits for construction activities will be obtained prior to commencement of
the work.

11.0

Quality Control

All works will be undertaken in compliance with the quality requirements of the (*SPECIFY)

Assembly and Forming the Structure


1. Each gabion mesh will be unfolded on a hard, flat surface. All kinks will be stretched and
stamped out. It will be made sure that all creases are in the correct positions for forming the
box, one at the edge of each end panel and each diaphragm.

2. The side and end panels will be folded into the upright position to form a rectangular box. The
top corners of the box will be joined together with the thick selvedge wire which is sticking out
from the corners of each panel. This will make sure that the tops of all four sides of the box
are level.

3. Wiring up will begin by securing the binding wire at the top corners of the panels to be joined,
by looping it through and twisting it together. Then the wire will be laced around the selvedges
with single loops and double loops in turn at 100 mm intervals. Finally, the wire will be
fastened securely at the bottom corner, and the loose end will be poked inside the gabion.
Next, the diaphragms will be lifted into the vertical position and will be wired up to the side
panels in exactly the same way.

4. When possible, small groups of gabions will be wired together off the site, and then will be
carried to the structure as complete sections for joining to other gabions already in position.
The ground where the gabion structure is to be built will be leveled as much as possible
before placing the empty gabions in position. The gabions will be wired together, using exactly

the same method as for assembling single gabions. The gabions will be placed front to front
and back to back so that pairs of facing lids can later be wired down in one go.

5. The empty gabion or group of gabions will be placed in position. The end from which work is
to start will be secured, through the two corners, into the ground and will be tied firmly to a
good anchorage. The remaining empty gabions will be wired one to another as work
proceeds. The opposite side or end of the gabion will be stretched. The top and bottom are
then will be kept stretched until the gabion has been filled, by tying them to a fixed point. While
the gabion is being stretched, it will be checked that the wiring together has been properly
carried out and is not pulling apart. If it is, the section will be rewired. When on the structure,
the gabions will be wired securely along the sides and ends to the adjoining gabions and to
the already filled gabions below.

Filling
1. The filling material to be used will not be larger than 200 mm and not smaller than the size of
the mesh. The gabions will be filled by hand or by machine, making sure that the stone is
tightly packed and has a minimum of voids. When possible, the last gabion will left empty, as it
is easier to join the next one to it. All the outside compartments of 1 m high gabions will be
filled only up to one third full. Then horizontal bracing wires will be fixed in the gabions directly
above the level of the stone in those compartments and the bracing wires will be tied to keep
the face even and free from bulging. Next, the gabion will be filled up to two thirds and the
bracing will be repeated. Finally it will be filled to the top. 500 mm gabions will be filled in 2
'lifts' with bracing at half full. In order to allow for settlement the fill will be leveled off 25 mm to
50 mm above the top of the mesh.

2. The lids will be tightly stretched over the filling and will be wired down. The corners will be
temporarily secured first, to ensure that there is enough mesh to cover the whole area. Some
filling may have to be removed from the top of the gabion to prevent the lid from being overstretched.
