Each year, this contest is open to any contractor, architect or designer who uses or specifies Scofield Systems. Projects are judged on skill of installation, creativity, artistic expression, and integration with the overall design intent. This year the judges selected six grand prize winners from 100 entries, see them below.

BETA Group, Lincoln, RI

Heavy/Highway Category - Grand Prize Winner

The Washington Street Bridge was constructed in 1930 as an active draw bridge allowing ships access to the City of Providence. Connected to one of the busiest highways in Rhode Island (Route 195), the bridge crosses the mouth of the Seekonk River which opens up into Narragansett Bay. There is a constant 5-15 MPH wind blowing across the bridge, playing potential havoc on the stamping process. Also it is rarely shaded and is in direct sunlight 90% of the day. Hot sun, constant wind - not exactly conducive to finishing concrete. Multiple 10'x10' panels were placed in real life conditions, to modify techniques and verify results. The project team all contributed to an aesthetically pleasing highly durable pathway that will memorialize the efforts for future generations to enjoy.

PGA Design, Oakland, CA

Integral or Color Hardened Concrete - Grand Prize Winner
Rotary Play Garden

The Rotary Play Garden is a fully accessible play area located in City of San Jose’s Guadalupe River Park. The play area started out as a vision by Rotarian Julie Matsushima who had a desire to see her twin granddaughters, Aimee and Chloe, be able to play side-by-side, even though Aimee was born with cerebral palsy.

Designed by PGA design's landscape architect Karen Krolewski, the Play Garden focuses on providing multiple activities that accommodate a variety of skills, including spinning, rotating, swinging, sliding and tactile play. Scofield’s Chromix Admixtures and Lithochrome color hardener systems are featured throughout the park's concrete work. Most prominently is the blue walkway spine in the middle of the park which is constructed of a custom LM Scofield color hardener product color Rotary Blue II.

Ozark Pattern Concrete , Lowell, AR

Stamped Concrete - Grand Prize Winner
Banks Rek

The challenge for this customer was to provide the most authentic slate pool deck as possible. In order to accomplish this feat Ozark Pattern Concrete imprinted a random slate pattern using Platinum Gray Lithochrome color hardener and Deep Charcoal release. Individual stones were then highlighted using stains, then the entire surface was grouted and sealed. The attention to detail, well defined execution of the stamping process, and a cantilevered edge allows this pool desk to assume the characteristics of random slate.

Hyde Concrete, Pasadena, MD

Stained Concrete - Grand Prize Winner
Canapp Residence

The Canapp residence, in Fulton, MD, is owned by veterinarians who were looking for a beautiful yet durable floor that would withstand their numerous animals. Hyde Concrete was recommended to the interior designer for being able produce exemplary finished floors. The designer wanted a wood inlay in the floor that mirrored the wood beams in the ceiling. Additionally, she wanted a bit of texture in the otherwise smooth self-leveling overlay. When the ¾” walnut inlays and extensive protection were in place, a self-leveling overlayment system was applied to create the canvas. Then the surface was colored using Scofield Lithochrome Padre Brown and a topcoat sealer system.

Missouri Terrazzo, St. Louis, MO

Dyed and Polished Concrete - Grand Prize Winner
AMC Theater

When looking at this floor, it is hard to believe that this is concrete. Floor construction was initially performed using seeded aggregates and achieving a uniform substrate. Missouri Terrazzo then ground and polished the floor using the Scofield Formula One system in Leather, Driftwood and Black. The patterning of the floors related well to the patterning of the overall design, AMC Movie Theater was elated with the vibrancy and durability of this project.

Capitol Decorative Concrete, Piedmont, SC

Artistic Concrete - Grand Prize Winner
Harbor Map

This is a 3300 sf retail space done at the Charleston Marina Resort. A TRUE navigational map of the Charleston, SC harbor was designed from an old. Capitol Decorative Concrete sketched the entire map on the floors. Precision in scoring and a technique in acid staining known as “pooling,” allowed for this replication of the Charleston Harbor to be the authentication point of this business.
