In the fall of 2016, JC Hines and Associates was honored to be selected to join the design team of Watermark Residential as they finalized site design for a new project in Chesterfield, Missouri.  One of the nation’s top multifamily builders, Watermark had begun planning the 345-unit upscale apartment community when they recognized that the site plans for the Chesterfield project would require a number of critical retaining wall structures.  The retaining walls would not only need to meet the complex geotechnical and structural needs of the project, but also the inspiring aesthetics that are a signature aspect of Watermark Residential communities.

JC Hines and Associates has provided retaining wall design and consulting services for the following earth retention structures that are currently under construction:

  • Eight (8) Redi-Rock retaining wall structures featuring the Ledgestone face texture totaling over 21,000 square feet.
  • Eight (8) interconnected Versa-Lok Mosaic retaining wall structures totaling over 4,000 square feet.

The Redi-Rock retaining wall units were manufactured by Schreiter Concrete of Wright City, Missouri.  The Versa-Lok retaining wall units were manufactured by Midwest Block & Brick of Bridgeton, Missouri.  Construction is scheduled for completion in 2018.
