The Best in Concrete Renovation Honored at WOC Ceremony


St. Petersburg, FL – The most innovative and challenging projects completed by CSDA contractors in 2018 were recognized during a prestigious World of Concrete ceremony in Las Vegas.


On Wednesday, January 23, 2019, the association hosted the sixth annual Concrete Openings Awards at its booth in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. CSDA Executive Director Patrick O’Brien acted as Master of Ceremonies while the association’s vice-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:

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.
