Bricks and Mortar Take Center Stage
The new Sigma Kappa Sorority House at the University of Florida, designed by Hug & Associates Architects, has again been recognized for excellence. This time by the Masonry Association of Florida. Steve Bischke of Coastal, an Oldcastle company, the supplier for the Burlington Brick (manufactured by Columbus Brick Company) used in the construction of Sigma Kappa, was on-hand to receive the first-place award for Commercial/Institutional (Suppliers). The team at the D.E. Scorpio Corporation is very proud of the continued recognition the Sigma Kappa House is receiving and our valued partnership with Coastal and the many talented craftsmen responsible for the outstanding work from JAM Construction.
The award ceremony took place in Fort Lauderdale on October 1. The 2017 MAF Masonry Excellence Award winners were judged on the qualities of art, innovation and endurance. The projects submitted for the Masonry Excellence Awards are a celebration of the art and craftsmanship of the mason, the innovation of the contractor and architect, and the endurance of masonry materials produced here in Florida.
Projects submitted were reviewed and judged anonymously by a distinguished jury of masonry and design professionals. Consideration was given to the overall design and use of masonry, as well as the technical aspects of each project. The winning projects showed superiority in technical design and craftsmanship.
