Case Studies

Dealing with a failed wall that was creating a safety hazard and keeping a critical transportation route closed, Midway Middle School used Stone Strong's big engineered retaining wall blocks to create a strong, sturdy precast wall that’s designed to withstand the test of time and elements.

Working with a tight schedule, a waterlogged jobsite, and its customer’s aesthetic requirements, HS Construction & Excavating finds the perfect solution in a wing wall constructed from Stone Strong modular blocks. 

While bidding to replace a corrugated steel pipe culvert creek crossing along Hwy 89 with precast box culvert and wing walls, Stone Strong dealer, M Con Pipe and Products decided to approach the consulting engineer about using Stone Strong in lieu of the specified waste concrete blocks. The result was a Stone Strong box culvert and wing wall, which were installed on time and on budget.

In October 2012, Lynchburg College announced plans for the expansion and renovation of their student center. Taking into account the site's steep, sloping geography, project engineers informed school officials that a substantial, 20-plus-foot retaining wall would need to be built to facilitate a roadway. Lynchburg officials used this opportunity to give their students something different, something special, something no one had ever seen before: a dual purpose retaining-rock climbing wall.
