At Brentwood Gate, a new master-planned community
in suburban Vancouver, nature-inspired landscaping
and architectural beauty were high priorities. To keep
these priorities in mind, the team decided to use a large
retaining wall and innovative engineering to create a
striking façade to fit into the surroundings.
Keystone’s 133Elite™ was used because of its efficiency,
natural looks and design for large-wall applications.
With a 8-in. x 24-in. face dimension, the same effort
that creates one-square-foot of wall area with other wall
systems produces 1.33 square feet of wall area with the
Keystone 133Elite. This provided a larger-scale look that
aesthetically matched the larger wall look and feel of the
project, and reduced the number of units required to
complete the job.
Keystone 133Elite also provides a 33 percent reduction in
the number of pins required and the mid-range weight
of each block is 95 pounds, allowing for it to be installed
by one person. This maximizes man-hours and increases
Due to its inventive engineering, the project received the
Gold Award in 2009 from the VRCA (Vancouver Regional Construction Association) awards program
in the Supplier/Manufacturer category. Brentwood Gate has also been recognized by the BC
Association of Professional Engineers and Geo Scientists and has made the 2008/2009 recognized
