Building into existing rebar, shotcrete

Pool structure question for anyone with experience or knowledge on it. Steep beach entry slope, 1:3 slope. If a platform were to be added to raise up the slope on one side to level entry out some to create a ramp, how structurally sound would it be? It would be connected to the current shotcrete with drill and pin to the steel and then shot with more shotcrete. It would probably be solid shotcrete but could also be sand bag if needed. Pool builder feels it would be structurally sound either way. Is this correct? Would it void any original shotcrete warranty? Thanks for any knowledge on this.

Is there any waranty left on the original work?
I may not give you the answer you want to hear, but I will give an honest opinion of your situation as you decribe it.
