CFA Project Of The Year – Coming Out On Top
The 2016 Project of the Year Awards…continued excellence in the field of cast-in-place concrete.
CFA’s Project of the Year Elevate Craftsmanship
Each winter, the Concrete Foundations Association opens a competition to its membership for a broad spectrum of cast-in-place concrete projects. These projects evidence the skill, quality, craftsmanship and at times creativity of today’s cast-in-place contractor. Many of these projects are quickly covered up and the achievement lost visually to the project supported above it. Some, however, become the framework expressed through masterful works of concrete technology and construction. This year’s Grand Project of the Year accomplishes all of this and sets new standards for aesthetic value in residential structural concrete work. The rest of the project awards complete the portfolio for continued excellence in the field of cast-in-place concrete.
The “Great Recession” now firmly in the review mirror has left an indelible fingerprint on today’s concrete contracting company. This fingerprint evidences the extreme resiliency of the American concrete contractor when everything is on the line. It also evidences, through such resiliency, the creativity to apply experience and ability toward new, unique work when necessary. In the end, it is often this uniqueness that becomes a new expertise and ultimately supports new architectural trends. On the pages that follow, we introduce you to the projects that have captured this spirit and this creativity as selected by you, the readers and professionals involved in this industry. We hope you find these projects indicative not of the elite opportunities or the exceptional cases in today’s market, but rather complimentary of the work done throughout North America. If this can be said, then we offer you to also be heard.
