Recently, Can Ridge Industries Ltd. was contacted by a customer wanting to create a retaining wall using Verti-Block decorative blocks. With one call, Can Ridge was able to execute the whole project; from product coordination, transportation, and installation service to the clients specification.

The Challenge:

The retaining wall was at the rear of the property and had very limited access to where the blocks needed to be placed between two houses. Excavation equipment was not a option due to grades and limited space.

Can Ridge executed a plan of action safely and efficiently involving 3 key factors:

  • Transportation
  • Hydraulic Mobile Cranes
  • Hands On Man-Power
Verti Block Interlocking Blocks

Utilizing our flat-deck trailers, Can Ridge transported the Verti-Block decorative blocks to site where they were then offloaded and put into place using our 50-Ton hydraulic crane unit, which had to operate and place the blocks in the narrow location by extending the boom over 100 ft. 

The job also required a stoneslinger to backfill the retaining wall, as well as utilizing the manpower on site to level the area and ensure the blocks were placed correctly.

Can Ridge Industries Ltd. was able to facilitate all aspects of this job, from transportation, to crane services, to on-site manpower, ensuring the project was executed from start to finish.
