About Fast Tilt Walls

The iCON Wall solution came from a desire to create a retaining wall that was more than functional. With a construction method that is similar to decorative flatwork, your aesthetic options are endless, from simple and modern to highly decoratively enhanced.

Russel Baumgartner


Russ was taught general engineering, the concrete trades and good business practices by working in his father’s company, Concrete Contractors Interstate of Colorado. Russ’ father started CCI in 1958 in Brighton, CO, and within 17 years turned it into a transit mix corporation, a sand & gravel corporation, and a concrete ready mix plant. In addition to developing a strong work ethic and skill set, Russ inherited a true entrepreneurial spirit from his father. Russ earned a degree with honors from the Civil Engineering School of Colorado State University at the age of 22.

By the time he was 26, Russ opened a branch of CCI in San Diego, CA. In 1986, Russ’ branch of Concrete Contractors Interstate began operating as an independent corporation. Over the decades, Russ has evolved CCI into a dynamic business with specialized departments that could each stand alone as an independent company. Always focused on the progression of CCI, Russ ensures the company is always leading the industry by developing proprietary concrete systems and patenting the innovations, while also launching an in-house research and development lab to further establish proprietary-aesthetic concrete systems. From apprentice to project manager and foreman to president, Russ has truly held every position imaginable and is a leader in the concrete construction field.
