Engineered Retaining Walls for Universities & Campuses
Leveling hilly terrain, creating space for a growing campus, making room for more parking, providing access to a new sports stadium...these are just a few of the many reasons Redi-Rock has been used on universities and campuses across North America and beyond.
Why Choose Redi-Rock for Your Campus?
Because Redi-Rock walls can be built with minimal space requirements, are easy to install, and look great. They are the ideal solution to some of the various challenges faced by designers of campus and university improvements. The Redi-Rock retaining wall system uses massive one ton blocks made of 4,000 PSI (27.6MPa) concrete, so they're made to last. Plus, they come in many great textures, adding beauty to your school.
What Do You Need to Create on Your Campus?
You'll find Redi-Rock retaining walls on multiple campuses, including West Point, the University of Idaho, University of Tennessee, and Georgia State to name a few. Engineers and architects choose Redi-Rock because it's a structural solution that looks great, setting your campus apart from many run-of-the-mill retaining wall options other campuses are using.

University & Campus Case Studies
Morehead State University, Morehead, Kentucky
Once an unsightly part of campus, this 9-foot (2.7-meter) tall storm channel retaining wall at Morehead State University now keeps storm water from damaging the campus by preventing erosion.
Grand Valley State University, Allendale, Michigan
Grand Valley State University chose Redi-Rock retaining and freestanding walls for their stadium renovation. The grand scale of the 1,600 Limestone blocks helped achieve the finished result the university was after.
Oral Roberts University, Tulsa, Oklahoma
When the natural banks of the stormwater runoff channel near Oral Roberts University (ORU) began eroding, the City of Tulsa needed to act. They chose Redi-Rock, knowing the massive blocks could withstand the velocity of the moving water.
