Description:
The Evangola State Park project included the rehabilitation of an 1100 SF retaining wall, designed with textured concrete insets as well as custom letters and leaf shapes imprinted on a smooth area of the wall. The concrete retaining wall was commissioned by New York Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, designed by Watts Architecture & Engineering, and completed by BVR Construction Company.

Custom Rock Formliner pattern #1125 Autumn Leaves – with stones ranging in size from 1″-12”h x 10”-57”w, stacked without mortar – was used for the rock texture portion of the retaining wall. This drystack pattern was chosen to compliment the two large custom leaf shapes and the seventeen 8’h x 2”d, letters spelling out the name of the park. Staining of the rock textured concrete consisted of 6 colors and the letters/leaves received 1 color each.

Custom Rock Formliner manufactured the multi-use elastomeric drystack formliners, custom leaves and letter molds, and completed the staining of all areas of the wall.
