Case Studies

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.
