The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute, along with National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) and Brick Industry Association (BIA), is now accepting entries for the 5th Annual HNA Hardscape Project Awards to be presented during HNA 2012 Awards Breakfast being held on October 26, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Louisville in Louisville, Ky.

The HNA Hardscape Project Awards recognize the contractor’s ability to create outstanding hardscape projects. Awards are presented for commercial, industrial, transportation, municipal and residential projects. The deadline for entries is Wednesday, September 19, 2012.

“There are many hardscape awards programs available to designers but the HNA Hardscape Project Awards truly recognizes the quality of construction and craftsmanship by the contractor”, says ICPI Chairman of the Board, Dave Carter of OAKS Concrete Products.

Past HNA Hardscape Project Award winner Aaron Wolfe, Vice-President/ CEO of Wickenburg Landscape and Irrigation, Inc. told us that “winning a nationally recognized award has elevated the perceived value of our company. We compete side by side with more and more companies for fewer jobs. Clients who truly desire magnificent projects will be drawn to companies with the proper credentials, and I have come to believe that those credentials are not complete without an HNA Hardscape Project Award.”

The early bird entry fee is $100 for members (ICPI, BIA or NCMA) and $200 for non-members, which ends September 5th. After that the entry fee is $140 for members and $240 for non-members. Projects for consideration must have been completed between November 1, 2008 and June 30, 2012. Applications may include, but are not limited to, walkways, patios, driveways, plazas, parking lots and roadways.

The winning entries will be featured in Interlocking Concrete Pavement Magazine and other trade publications as well as on the HNA website at

The breakfast is open to all HNA registrants as an optional ticketed event. Tickets are $19 per person or $150 for a reserved table of eight.

The HNA Hardscape Project Awards are produced by the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute, National Concrete Masonry Association and the Brick Industry Association.

The HNA Awards Breakfast is sponsored by Belgard Hardscapes.
