St. Petersburg, FL – Four of the most innovative and challenging concrete renovation projects completed by CSDA contractors in 2019 were recognized during the World of Concrete in Las Vegas.
On Wednesday, February 5, 2020, the association hosted the seventh annual Concrete Openings Awards at its booth in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. New CSDA Executive Director Erin O’Brien acted as Master of Ceremonies while the association’s President, Matthew Finnigan, presented the awards to the winners. World of Concrete attendees and members of the industry media joined CSDA to celebrate with the winning contractors. The winners are:
Concrete Cutting Company, Inc. (Port Chester, NY) | Road, Bridges & Airports
Concrete Tunnel Renovated with Custom-Built Equipment
Concrete Technology Services Mid-Atlantic (Glenn Dale, MD) | Building Construction
Historic Federal Building Receives Modern Facelift
Holes South Texas, LLC (Houston, TX) | Industrial Renovation
Diamond Wire Sawing Slices Through 2,000 Tons of Concrete
Interstate Sawing & Demolition (West Bend, WI) | Infrastructure Renovation
Shopping Mall Demolition with Customized Robot Fleet
The inaugural Concrete Openings Awards ceremony was held in 2014 to showcase the best projects covered in CSDA’s official magazine and recognize the contractors who performed the work. Sixteen job stories are split into four categories and put before a panel of judges. The panel scores each job on its pre-planning, use of innovation, degree of difficulty and quality requirements. Details and images of the winning projects are displayed during the awards ceremony and for the remainder of the exhibition.
“It is a privilege to participate in the judging of the Concrete Openings Awards. I am still fascinated by the ingenuity and commitment of my fellow CSDA contractors. I find that I place myself alongside them when evaluating their projects. Although quality is a prime factor in a successful project, I enjoyed exploring the innovations, planning and complexity of the projects that were presented this year. CSDA contractors continue to set the bar higher and higher with their commitment to their clients.”
said Ted Johnston, CSDA Past President and member of the judging panel.
