2017 Decorative Concrete Awards
The Decorative Concrete Council, a specialty council of the American Society of Concrete Contractors, St. Louis, Mo., has announced the winners of its ninth annual awards competition. The winners were recognized at a ceremony at the World of Concrete, Las Vegas, on Tuesday, January 17th, 2017. Below is a collection of the first place projects.
Sundek of San Antonio, San Antonio, TX won the WOW! Award, best overall project, for Mission Concepcion Park, also in San Antonio. A 7,000 SF area of the park received a combination of sandblasting and stain to create the intricate, swirled design that mimics the swirls and eddies of the San Antonio River. The surface needed to be durable enough to hold up under significant bike and foot traffic. The acid stain was applied first, followed by months of using a needle scaler to remove the surface of the concrete. The beautiful transformation to stained and exposed concrete pavement presents a wonderful contrast between liquid nature and solid infrastructure.
