Designing Reinforced Retaining Walls

The Redi-Rock PC System

In very simple terms, the Redi-Rock PC System utilizes a 1540 lb. concrete blocks with a vertical core slot cast through the center, allowing us to wrap a 12 in. wide strip of geogrid through the block.

University at Buffalo Simulated Earthquake Video Link

Kistner Concrete recently manufactured a half scale 60-ft long Trapezoidal Bridge. The eight segment post-tensioned precast super structure supported by 2 Precast Pier Caps & 2- 10 ft. Sq. Vertically Post-Tentioned 5 in. wall hollow Piers, on 2- 10′ x 10′ Precast Concrete Foundation Blocks. The entire assembly was erected on massive twin shake tables at the university’s Structural Engineering and Earthquake Simulation Laboratory, Amherst NY. 
During the time period of testing the bridge underwent over 150 simulated earthquakes each lasting about a minute. The tests varied in intensity, and motion. Scroll down to see a video of the simulated earthquake.

UNIVERSITY CREATES SPACE FOR NEW HOUSING WITH REDI-ROCK® RETAINING WALLS

WORCESTER STATE UNIVERSITY USES GRAVITY AND REINFORCED RETAINING WALLS TO CREATE BUILDABLE SPACE ON UNIVERSITY CAMPUS

Redi-Rock: AUDI CHOOSES REDI-ROCK RETAINING WALLS FOR DEALERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

Up until last year, the Audi dealership in Halifax, Nova Scotia was an eyesore. The dealership was located in a prime location, but significant grade changes prevented them from really showcasing cars and creating a great buying experience. 

In 2014, engineers working with Audi chose Redi-Rock to build retaining walls that turned this ugly lot into a modern dealership. The building now allows customers to drive in on 3 separate levels, and the inventory is displayed in a way that makes customers want to buy. 

Audi achieved this by using several gravity retaining walls that allowed them to build incredibly close to the property lines. In addition, Audi built a massive reinforced retaining wall to separate the two main levels of the dealership. The look of the Redi-Rock walls also met the stringent standard of the Audi franchise, making this dealership a real showcase.
