ASCC/DCC Names 2019 Concrete Award Winners

The winners of the American Society of Concrete Contractors’ 11th annual Decorative Concrete Awards competition were recognized at a ceremony Jan. 22 at the 2019 World of Concrete in Las Vegas.

Contractors could enter projects in 13 categories. Each category, except countertops and project video, was divided by size, grouping together projects less than 5,000 square feet and those more than 5,000 square feet. Judges could award a first and second place in each size classification.

No awards were bestowed in the countertop category this year and, in other categories, there wasn’t a second-place honoree. From all the winners, a best overall project was selected.

At the top of the list, Bullion Coatings of Katy, Texas, won the WOW! Award for the best overall project, the Sawmill Lake Recreation Center splashpad in Sienna Plantation, Missouri City, Texas. This project also garnered first place in Concrete Artistry, Under 5,000 Square Feet, and Decorative Coatings, Under 5,000 Square Feet.

Bullion used Sundek Classic Texture and Sundek Suncoat on the project which was designed by TBG Partners of Houston.
