As a civil or municipal engineer, it's up to you to design retaining walls for community infrastructure projects that not only provide structural support that will stand the test of time, but that will also make your community look great. No pressure at all, right? 

With its superior aesthetics and proven engineering, its easy to see why municipal engineers around the world have used the Redi-Rock® retaining wall system to:

  • support local roadways
  • create space for bike paths
  • construct outdoor stages and amphitheaters
  • protect against flooding and erosion
  • provide access to local park and trail systems and much more!

The Redi-Rock retaining wall system uses massive, one ton precast blocks that stack together like giant Legos and harness the power of gravity to create tall, reliable walls. It installs quickly and easily, allowing many cities and counties to use their own construction crews to install Redi-Rock walls. And with a variety of beautiful face textures to choose from that feature the look of natural stone, designers can select the option that looks best in their area to create a consistent, timeless look throughout each project. 

How can Redi-Rock help you design a municipal retaining wall that your community will be proud of?
