Concrib recently won a tender by the Gold Coast Council for the design, construction and certification of retaining walls associated with roadway upgrade project. In a first for Australia, "Stone Strong" system walls were chosen. These unique retaining wall systems offer a modular precast concrete block wall system.

Innovative design and exceptional support

These fully engineered precast interlocking block retaining walls have earned a solid reputation for technical innovation and each installation is backed by Concrib's unparalleled customer support.

The attractive webbed block design minimises concrete volume and transport/handling weight, while maximising geotechnical performance. Stone Strong's main large block is 2.44m x .92m. So with a face area of 2.25 square metres per block, installation is rapid.

Peace of mind

When it comes to quality, the precision manufacturing and superior design of each block ensures that these walls are built to last. Close dimensional tolerances, robust structural design, and 50mPa concrete, allows for a minimum 100-year design life within a broad range of applications and engineering settings.
