NCMA has opened the 2013 Concrete Masonry Design Awards of Excellence program, with July 15 registration and September 3 entry deadlines. Cosponsored by Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute, it highlights design excellence using concrete masonry and hardscapes for commercial, residential and landscape applications. NCMA has likewise added to this year’s competition a category for manufactured stone veneer projects, owing to the recent assimilation of the Masonry Veneer Manufacturers Association. Entries forms and additional program details can be obtained here, or from NCMA’s Randi Hertzber, 703/713-1900.
