Retaining Wall Solutions for the Power Industry


When it comes to designing power stations and facilities, a level construction site in an easily accessible location is the ideal scenario – but it's seldom the reality. Luckily, there's a proven, engineered retaining wall solution you can rely on to overcome many site scenarios.

Why Choose Redi-Rock for Power Industry Applications?


Redi-Rock is a precast modular block wall system designed for engineers by engineers that uses massive, one-ton blocks that stack together like giant Lego blocks to build strong, reliable walls. The system makes it possible to overcome:

  • Remote locations
  • Uneven construction sites
  • Limited space for expansion
  • Environmental concerns
  • Site security issues
  • Lack of accessibility and more.
