The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) along with the Brick Industry Association and National Concrete Masonry Association will announce the 5th Annual HNA Hardscape Project Award winners at the HNA Hardscape Project Awards Breakfast ceremony taking place at the Hyatt Regency Louisville on Friday, October 26 from 7 – 8:30 a.m.

The HNA Hardscape Project Awards recognize outstanding hardscape projects by contractors in residential and commercial/industrial applications. Projects include but are not limited to walkways, patios, driveways, plazas, parking lots, etc. In its fifth year, the awards program received 114 entries, a 33% increase over last year. A total of 20 award winners will be recognized in the awards breakfast ceremony.

“The HNA Hardscape Project Awards represent the best walkways, patios, driveways, plazas, parking lots and roadways in the industry” said Charles McGrath, CAE, ICPI Executive Director.

The HNA Hardscape Project Awards are broken down into four main categories: Concrete Pavers, Segmental Retaining Walls, Clay Brick and Combination. The main categories are broken down even further by either residential or commercial applications and then by project size. Each main category is assigned three judges that scored each project based on five rating categories including design, construction quality/craftsmanship, pavement/wall integration, construction innovation and overall excellence.

The awards ceremony will highlight photos and provide a brief description of the 20 winning projects. Award winners will also be featured in Interlock Design Magazine, other trade publications, and the HNA website starting November 1st.

Tickets for the awards ceremony are available at for $19 per person or $150 for a reserved table of eight.
