Sixteen job stories are split into four categories and put before a panel of judges. The panel scores each job on its pre-planning, use of innovation, degree of difficulty and quality requirements. Details and images of the winning projects are displayed during the awards ceremony and for the remainder of the exhibition. It is a privilege to participate in the judging of the Concrete Openings Awards. I am still fascinated by the ingenuity and commitment of my fellow CSDA contractors. I find that I place myself alongside them when evaluating their projects. Although quality is a prime factor in a successful project, I enjoyed exploring the innovations, planning and complexity of the projects that were presented this year. CSDA contractors continue to set the bar higher and higher with their commitment to their clients, said Ted Johnston, CSDA Past President and member of the judging panel.
