The members of the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) and the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI), the jury panel, and all the other involved parties are pleased to announce and recognize these winning projects, architects, designers, and product producers for their outstanding use of concrete masonry and hardscape products. On September 26, 2011 a distinguished jury panel including AIA and ASLA members, met at NCMA to determine the winners of the 2011 NCMA/ICPI Design Awards of Excellence.

The judges had quite a challenge to select the winning entries from the many fine projects presented. The winning companies should take pride in the fact that their project stood out from the rest. These winning projects will be honored at an NCMA/ICPI awards reception in Orlando, Florida on March 2nd 2012 during the annual convention and ICON Expo. In addition, look for the winning projects to be featured in up coming issues of Concrete Masonry Designs magazine.
