Grand Prize Winner
Scott Bulger, J.L. Marshall & Sons Inc., Pawtucket, R.I. MGM Grand at Foxwoods, Mashantucket, Conn.

The MGM Grand at Foxwoods concrete project consisted of 105,000 square feet of integrally colored, stamped concrete for the hotel porte-cochere, pool deck and exterior walkways of a new casino resort.

The integrally colored stamped concrete – about 100,000 square feet – was created mainly with Chromix Admixtures for Color-Conditioned Concrete in Spring Beige, stamped with Lithotex Pavecrafters Ashler Stone Embossing Skins and using Lithochrome Antiquing Release in Deep Charcoal color. The balance of the integral colored stamp-work was Chromix Admixtures in French Gray, stamped with Lithotex Pavecrafters Fractured Slate embossing skins and using the Deep Charcoal antiquing release agent.

In addition, there was also 7,000 square feet of stained concrete. The stained concrete was placed without integral color in the fall of 2007 and allowed to cure over the winter. The staining operation began in the spring with the return of temperatures warmer than 60 degrees, using multiple colors of Lithochrome Chemstain Classic, including Faded Terra Cotta, Antique Amber, Padre Brown and Dark Walnut.

The judges were: Bent Mikkelsen, publisher, Professional Trade Publications; Jim Peterson, president, ConcreteNetwork.com; Mike Harrington, decorative concrete product specialist, Chas. E. Phipps Co.; and landscape architect Matthew Carlile, ASLA, of the Des Moines, Iowa, office of Confluence.
