ASCC DCC Ninth Annual Award Winners Announced
January 27, 2017

The Decorative Concrete Council (DCC), a specialty council of the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), has announced the winners of its ninth annual Decorative Concrete Awards competition. The winners were recognized at a ceremony at the World of Concrete, Las Vegas, on January 17, 2017.

Sundeck of San Antonio, San Antonio, TX won the WOW! Award, best overall project, for Mission Concepcion Park, also in San Antonio. A 7,000 SF area of the park received a combination of sandblasting and stain to create the intricate, swirled design that mimics the swirls and eddies of the San Antonio River. The surface needed to be durable enough to hold up under significant bike and foot traffic. The acid stain was applied first, followed by months of using a needle scaler to remove the surface of the concrete. The beautiful transformation to stained and exposed concrete pavement presents a wonderful contrast between liquid nature and solid infrastructure.

Virginia winners are:

Cast-In-Place Stamped, Over 5000 SF, 2nd Place, Greystone Masonry, Stafford, VA for Inn at Beach Club.

Cast-In-Place Stamped, Under 5000 SF, 1st Place, Greystone Masonry, Stafford, VA for the Owens Residence.

Cast-In-Place Stamped, Under 5000 SF, 2nd Place, Salzano Custom Concrete, Centreville, VA for Bristow Village Fireplace Retreat.

Overlays Under ¼”, Under 5000 SF, 1st Place, Sundeck of Washington, Chantilly, VA for Westside Parcel C.

The DCC is composed of contractors, manufacturers and suppliers of decorative concrete products. The Council is dedicated to improving the technical and business expertise of the contractors that pursue this specialty market. To enter the 2018 awards competition go to
