A retaining wall, courtesy of ReCon

ReCon Wall Systems Inc. of Minneapolis, Minn., created a retaining wall 600 feet long and 20 feet tall for the back end of a condominium development in Cannon Falls, Minn.

The wall cut into the side of an existing slope on a property with a 20-foot elevation change. Challenges on the job included fine sandy soil, the lack of a temporary easement to cross the property line, and the destabilization risk of a basement excavation.

The ReCon Retaining Wall System is a high-performance system with the look, scale and durability of massive natural stone.
