WOC Awards Ceremony Celebrates CSDA Members

The most innovative and challenging projects completed by Concrete Sawing and Drilling Association contractors in 2015 were recognized during a ceremony at the recent World of Concrete exhibition in Las Vegas.

The CSDA, in conjunction with the Praxis event, hosted the third annual Concrete Openings Awards. This year’s ceremony was staged at the Praxis booth in the outdoor Gold Lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center. CSDA executive director Patrick O’Brien acted as Master of Ceremonies while the association’s president, Kevin Baron, presented the awards to the winner. WOC visitors and members of the industry media joined CSDA to celebrate with the winning contractors.

The inaugural Concrete Openings Awards ceremony was held in 2014 to showcase the best projects covered in CSDA’s magazine and recognize the contractors who performed the work. This year, 16 job stories were split into four categories and put before a panel of judges. The panel scored each job based on its pre-planning, use of innovation, and degree of difficulty and quality requirements. The project with the highest score in each category was declared the winner. Details and images of the winning projects were displayed during the awards ceremony and for the remainder of the exhibition.

“Just as I have seen for the past couple of years, these 2015 entries show the amazing skill and intricate planning that go into concrete cutting, polishing and imaging jobs,” said CSDA past president Tom Stowell. “It was a pleasure to be involved in the judging process and I congratulate the winners for their fantastic work.”
