MagnumStone Blocks Expand Business Parking Area
The expansion of Megasys’ business building, required additional parking be created by the City of Calgary to accommodate its growth. Megasys looked to minimize the footprint of the new parking stalls, while enhancing the aesthetics of the development. They chose MagnumStone for this commercial project because of the system’s minimal geogrid use, speed of installation and attractive facing.
Parking Lot Retaining Wall Details
At its tallest point the wall reaches 7 ft. (2.13 m.) tall, 8 ft. (2.44 m.) with embedment. The geogrid wall also features two beautifully curved 90° corners that surround the newly built parking spots. This application used a pelican colored anti-graffiti coating, which complemented the adjacent concrete. A wrought iron railing was also seamlessly installed through the hollow core of the MagnumStone blocks atop the wall.
