The 37th Annual Excellence in Concrete Project Awards hit hard

At the 37th Annual Excellence in Concrete Project Awards in Salem last week, due respect was shown to the innovators in the concrete industry.

We talked to a couple of winners about how they did it.

A to Z Wineworks, Newberg

Corey Omey, Project Manager at Ernest Munch Architecture, said the A to Z building had to be made of concrete.

"It was a fairly complex concrete project, but a fun project for

longtime clients and friends. We understand their business as a winery."

Concrete was a necessity for durability and for a building that steps down the hill. "It's one of the last sites they have on their property.

It's cantilevered offices that look out over the operation, It's in the middle of the winery. It's in the middle of the winery, and literally is the pivot of everything around it, feeding all the other buildings around it."

The client takes a long view, of wine, of staff and of its buildings.

"Concrete was the only answer for durability for a subterranean building. There really wasn't any other option for a material."

PAMPLIN MEDIA GROUP: JOSEPH GALLIVAN - Mixed market and affordable apartment building The Abigail won in part for its dramatic cantilevered 'front porch' along the southern frontage.

The Abigail, Pearl District, Portland

The winner in the mixed use category, The Abigail is a mixed affordable and market rate apartment building in the North Pearl

Architect Isaac Johnson, Ankrom Moisan Principal in Charge of The Abigail. He wrote in an email to the Business Tribune:

"The family-centric project features 128 affordable and 27 market-rate apartments that range from studio to three-bedroom units. The six-story building was constructed of five stories of wood frame construction above a ground floor and basement level of post-tensioned concrete construction. Concrete was chosen for these areas due to the fire-resistance, durability, and large span capability. This allowed for a dramatic cantilevered 'front porch' along the southern frontage. The design team also utilized exposed board formed concrete for exterior planters as well as the elevated loading dock that ties to the industrial heritage of NW 13th Avenue."

Tania Feliciano, the Job Captain on The Abigail, said "Walsh Construction is known for doing really nice concrete work, because they self-perform and do not sub it out. Along Northwest 13th Avenue, where we had the raised dock, we used Hardie panels as our board form to give it more of an industrial character."

The awards were presented on April 21, 2017 at the Salem Convention Center. With 16 categories and 60 entrants, the winners were recognized for their exemplary use of concrete in building design, construction, and landscaping on projects completed within the past two years in Oregon and Southwest Washington.
