SFC Designs Wall Awarded Retaining and Freestanding Wall of the Year

Auburn,, NH – Jeff Benway, P.E., retaining wall specialist at SFC Engineering Partnership, Inc., worked with Redi-Rock of Central Maine and the Maine General hospital on the Alfond Center for Health, a project which required eleven retaining and freestanding walls totaling 23,100 square feet. There were 50-feet of grade difference across the site, requiring significant cuts and fills. Jeff worked closely with Redi-Rock of Central Maine to face these challenges, while sticking to a very tight construction schedule.

The project received the 2013 Rocky Award for best “Freestanding Wall of the Year” from Redi-Rock International. The Rocky Awards are awarded annually, and recognize the best Redi- Rock projects completed each year across the US, Canada, England, Wales, Ireland, Spain, Norway, and South Korea.
