Each winter, the Concrete Foundations Association opens a competition to its membership for a broad spectrum of cast-in-place concrete projects. These projects evidence the skill, quality, craftsmanship and at times creativity of today’s cast-in-place contractor. Many of these projects are quickly covered up and the achievement lost visually to the project supported above it. Some, however, become the framework expressed through masterful works of concrete technology and construction.
"These projects demonstrate the technical challenges overcome by the professional craftsmen found throughout North America and continue to set a new standard for quality and technological achievement for the cast-in-place industry," states Jim Baty, CFA's executive director.
Categories for the competition at present include Single-Family Residences broken into three size categories; Commercial Projects; Apartments or Multi-Family Residences; All-Concrete Homes and Non-wall Structural Elements. The CFA also maintains a free-category option for defining new categories where contractors are working (e.g. agricultural).
