If the contractor is using ICF to construct the retaining wall, those definitely have lift height restrictions.
Bill,There appears to be no height limitations, it is a matter of the form strength and good construction practice.There are some particulars about the CIP walls (not to use high slump concrete, oil pretreat forms well in advance, use internal vibrators only), refer to Concrete Problems: Causes and Cures by John Ropke.V.

I've got a residential project where there is going to be a new basement. The basement walls are cast in place concrete. The owner is asking me if there is a four foot height limit per pour. I know of a four foot height limit per "lift" in masonry construction, but this is new to me. Of course, I don't do a lot of CIP walls.
