Scottish contractor MG Construction last month finished restoration of a collapsed masonry retaining wall at a children's nursery in Stirling.
Fortunately for the children and carers, the middle 10m section of the 40m long wall collapsed during the Christmas holidays in 2003.
Stirling council brought in MG Construction to design and build a contiguous bored pile retaining wall behind the old wall, which was then demolished and rebuilt.
When work began last summer, considerable temporary works - also supported by piles - were needed to support what remained of the masonry wall during piling.
The new wall retains 4m and consists of about 120, 220mm diameter and 8m long cased bored piles socketed into the underlying sandstone and dolerite bedrock.
