The Masonry Association of Florida, Inc. (MAF) Masonry Excellence Awards Program focuses the spotlight on the skilled MAF masonry contractors, architects and industry suppliers that are responsible for an array of outstanding masonry projects in the state of Florida.
The projects will be graded on a scale of 1 - 10 (1= poor and 10=best) in five categories, with a maximum high score of 50.
1. Prominence of Masonry – Masonry Volume
2. Degree of Difficulty
3. Innovative Design, Construction & Use of Masonry
5. Clean Job – Level Plumb, etc.
The project with the highest score in each category will receive first prize, a commemorative trophy and a $200 gift card from the Masonry Association of Florida. The highest score overall will win the 2015 Project of the Year, an additional trophy and another $200 gift card.
New in 2015 is the Board of Director's Award, which represents the MAF Board's choice for the project that best exemplifies the masonry industry in Florida.
