Click here to catch up on Elevate’s new case studies featuring Elevate Precast Counterfort Walls in Chicago.
The 2016 NPCA Show in Nashville, TN proved to be successful for Elevate as we received second place in NPCA’s Creative Use of Precast (CUP) Awards for our innovative, patent-pending counterfort retaining wall. Our system was acknowledged for its use on the Illinois Tollway’s I-90 corridor improvement project where close to 200,000 square feet (up to 32 foot tall full height units, ~280 sf/unit) of our wall was installed on time and within budget. Judged on innovation, the Elevate system utilizes existing onsite clay/soil as opposed to special backfill other systems rely on.

Elevate’s precast concrete counterfort wall system has been approved by the Illinois Department of Transportation as a qualified modular retaining wall system for use in the state of IL. In order for a system to be used on IDOT projects they require this prequalification which is achieved through a stringent review process by the state.
