The fire pit includes a wirelessly controlled gas unit and was custom built using 'Antique' wall stone. A retaining/sitting wall, pillars and boulders complete the retention of hillside. Winner: Segmental Retaining Walls – Commercial, Weston Corners, Cary, N.C. Contractor/Installer: Delta Development, Raleigh Manufacturer: Fay Block Designer: Delta Development, Terratech Engineers Weston Corners is a luxury mixed-use development in Cary, N.C. The site required several significant retaining walls with one close to the property line, street and a building. The retaining walls were originally designed as cast-in-place with brick pilasters, but the bids came in way over budget. Working with Terratech Engineers and Fay Block, Delta Development presented a 25' to 30' tall Allan Block Ashlar Blend patterned retaining walls with a deeper faced unit to create the appearance of pilasters or columns. 4 5 6
