ABU Online - Lunch and Learn Webinars
Segmental Retaining Walls (SRWs) have been changing the landscape for over 30 years by providing the right site solutions and creating the buildable land property owners are looking for. Allan Block would like to offer your firm an opportunity to present one of our informative “Lunch and Learns”. We are offering these presentations through an online webinar. This will allow your design team to stay at their workstation, or if they are working remotely, just link in from wherever they are.
Each presentation is one hour long and CEU’s are available for the attendees (0.1 CEU/1.0 PDH).

The Allan Block SRW Design Presentation is a course on segmental retaining wall (SRW) technical information. The intent is to develop an understanding of how all SRW’s function to ensure that these wall structures are properly assembled. As part of the presentation, the advancements in the industry will be discussed, which include seismic design consideration and the addition of Internal Compound Stability (ICS).
The Allan Block Best Practice Presentation communicates the best practices for the design of segmental retaining walls (SRW) as determined by Allan Block Corporation based on 25 plus years of research, design, and ield experience. 12 different layout topics will be introduced that will cover from initial design considerations to how the wall will be finished. Each subject is discussed by examining specific details and expanded information presented for each.
AB Walls is a comprehensive design tool which outputs professional quality construction drawings with technical support data. It allows designers to transfer a conceptual layout from a site plan to a complete wall solution and then export it to various CAD software programs, as well as to the 3D Modeling Program SketchUp. In addition, engineers can generate elevations, plans, terraced walls, and multiple crosssectional views of their retaining wall projects.
The Allan Block Inspection Presentation is an introductory course regarding the proper installation inspection of segmental retaining walls (SRWs). The intent is to develop a basic understanding of how SRW’s are built and what to look for when inspecting. This course is best suited for building inspectors or engineers that will be monitoring the installation and construction of SRW’s.
The Allan Block Retaining Wall Architectural Presentation is a course that is a complete overview of the segmental retaining walls (SRW). The intent is to develop an understanding of how all SRW’s function to ensure that these wall structures properly perform. Allan Block’s SRW product lines will be shown which includes our “Green” recycled SRW system. As part of the presentation, information on the additional product lines available - AB Fence and AB Courtyard Collections (patio seating walls) -will be introduced with highlights of each system.
Inspired by the city walls of ancient civilizations, AB Fence adds a refined style to any enclosure. Surround your sanctuary with a champion, AB Fence.
