Masonry Veneer Manufacturers Association Design Awards.

PROGRAM UNDERSCORES ASSOCIATION'S PROMOTIONAL WORK

Only in its third year, the Masonry Veneer Manufacturers Association (MVMA) Design Awards program has grown substantially. For the 2012 competition, 231 designs were submitted compared to 57 for the previous year. Additionally, the association added Best in Show and a Staff Innovation award to this year's competition.

Thirty-six of the 231 projects submitted were announced as winners in nine categories at the annual MVMA Winter Meeting, held in conjunction with the International Builders' Show, in Orlando, Fla. The four projects that scored highest among the judges took home the Best in Show awards. Moreover, Veneerstone was awarded the Staff Innovation Award for the Clovis Towers, in which the company designed a one-of-a-kind stone for the project.

Entries were collected between August and December 2011, and the winners were chosen by five judges from the American Institute of Building Design, whose executive director, Steven Mickley, CPBD, served as one of the judges. "I was very impressed by the quality and the volume of submissions this year," he noted. "With 231 choices, there was quite a bit of competition. AIBD is proud to serve as the judges for the Design Awards, and we hope to continue to work with the masonry veneer industry and see the innovative ways that adhered concrete masonry veneer continues to be used in building designs across the country."

The MVMA Design Awards were created to recognize the work of industry professionals who are setting trends by featuring adhered concrete masonry veneer (ACHV) in their projects. "We had some very impressive winners this year," said Mike Fischer, MVMA general manager. "We want to continue to grow this event and I believe this year was a great success. We look forward to topping it next year."
