Re-engineering Retainment Solutions



To challenge the world’s worst terrain and win with the world’s best innovative retaining technology.

RASBlox is an innovative technology using stack-able “Lego Block” types of concrete block forms which result in solid monolithic structures designed for use in extreme terrain.

The Problem

Today, extreme weather events threaten lives, damage the infrastructure of roads and bridges, of railways and of waterways, reeking social and economic havoc on a global scale.

2019 Globally
Damage from flooding in March 2019 is estimated at US$8 billion from events across the globe. The multi-billion-dollar impacts from flooding in the United States, Iran, and Cyclone Idai in Southern Africa were each enhanced by infrastructure unable to handle the large scale of water inundation.
2019 in Canada
Coast to coast, 1.3 billion of insured damages. Quebec and New Brunswick flooding 208 million. Eastern Canada, Hurricane Dorian 105 million.
2016, Canadian Infrastructure Report Card (CIRC)
Assessed the condition of Canada’s municipally owned infrastructure, graded 14 percent of sidewalks, roads, and bridges, as “poor” to “very poor”, with a total replacement value of $50.4 billion.

The Response

The Government of Canada is investing more than $180 billion over 12 years in five main infrastructure priorities, some of the spending directives include:

Climate Adaptation and Resilience11 years$281 million
Public Transit Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program10 years$20.1 billion
National Trade Corridors Fund11 years$2 billion
Trade and Transportation Information System1 years$50 million
Climate Risk Assessments4 years$16.4 million

Why Change?

RASBlox presents the construction industry with an innovated design which allows for a stronger, more versatile way to build retaining walls, arches, tunnels, and other structures required by the infrastructure industry, especially those designed for extreme environments. RASBlox delivers real solutions to the problems of road expansion in terrain which requires extensive fill processes and anchoring.

Weather and climate disasters in the U.S. killed 362 people in 2017 and caused a record $306 billion in damages. (
The US National Climate Assessment (NCA) states: "Climate change and extreme weather events are expected to increasingly disrupt our Nation’s energy and transportation systems, threatening more frequent and longer-lasting power outages, fuel shortages, and service disruptions, with cascading impacts on other critical sectors. Infrastructure currently designed for historical climate conditions is more vulnerable to future weather extremes and climate change." (
Canada is warming at a faster rate than most regions in the world. From 1950 to 2010, the average annual temperature in Canada has increased by close to 1.5°C, which is approximately double the global average (Bush et al., 2014). This warming trend has been associated with changes to other important climatic variables, including precipitation, sea level, inland water levels, sea ice, permafrost, and extreme weather events. (
