Houston Masonry Contractor Wins Coveted Golden Trowel Award
June 23, 2011 Houston, TX—Hoggatt LP, Houston area masonry contractor is proud to announce that they have been awarded the Honor Award Golden Trowel for the new entrance to Pine Forest Country Club. The contractor was presented with the award at the annual Associated Masonry Contractors of Houston awards gala held in the Crystal Ballroom of the historic Rice Hotel/Lofts. The Associated Masonry Contractors of Houston, in association with the Texas Masonry Council, wish to recognize and encourage excellence in all phases of masonry construction. The Golden Trowel Award is to be awarded annually to an Architect, a General Contractor or Owner, and a Masonry Contractor demonstrating excellence in their respective contributions to a masonry project deemed worthy by a distinguished panel of judges.
About the project:
The widening of Clay Road forced Pine Forest Country Club to re-design their entrance. The Architect took this opportunity to introduce approx. 250 linear feet of 6 foot tall single wythe brick fence, a new entry gate and two large masonry monuments that double as a sign to the exclusive club. The new entranceway needed to portray elegance and the club is a private members-only facility. The architect chose to place architectural cast stone at the base and top of the radius walls as well as a larger, peaked cast stone cap at the columns. Metal pin-mounted letters and embedded bronze plaques mark the entrance as well.
The contractor faced numerous challenges with this site, including a buried storm drain that affected the location of the foundations. The private golf facility remained open during the entirety of construction. Perhaps the most unique challenge faced by the contractor was that the new single wythe brick fence ran along the border of the golf driving range. Not only did the masons have difficult site conditions to face, they also had to dodge and duck errant golf balls.
