Taking five gold awards, Veneerstone led the 2011 Masonry Veneer Manufacturers Association Design Awards competition, results from which were announced June 14 at the association’s annual meeting in Anaheim, Calif. Three judges from the American Institute of Building Design, including Executive Director Steve Mickey, served as the judges for the contest. There were 27 winners (gold, silver and bronze) selected from the 57 entries. Submissions for the contest were received from February through June of this year.

Veneerstone’s five awards were followed by Quality Stone Veneer (three), Environmental StoneWorks (two), and Coronado Stone Works (one). “For the second year, our judges were overwhelmed by the amount of quality submissions,” said Mike Fischer, MVMA general manager. “This award program is really picking up speed and epitomizes how masonry veneer products can be used for innovative and eye-catching projects.”
