Elevate Receives National Precast Concrete Association’s CUP Award

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.
