The versatility of VERSA-LOK Standard—the original solid, pinned retaining wall system—is evident in the winner of the 2007 VERSA-LOK Design Contest. Scott Van Asten of Vosters Landscaping in Kaukauna, WI, built everything but the kitchen sink using VERSA-LOK Standard in his winning design. Van Asten also won first-place in 2005.
Landscape architects have gone from building retaining walls with VERSA-LOK to building bridges—and are winning awards in the process.
The National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) gave its 2008 “Award of Excellence” to Seven Bridges, a master planned residential community at Platte City, MO, near Kansas City, for an arched vehicular and pedestrian bridge built with VERSA-LOK Retaining Wall Systems at the community’s gateway. The bridge was designed by Shafer, Kline & Warren, Inc. of Lenexa, KS.
