2019 ASA Outstanding Shotcrete Project Awards

The American Shotcrete Association (ASA) is proud to announce the recipients of its 2019 Outstanding Shotcrete Project Awards.

The recipients were honored at the 15th Annual ASA Awards Banquet held in conjunction with World of Concrete, February 4, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. These awards confirm and demonstrate the exceptional advantages of shotcrete placement of concrete.

“We’re excited to showcase these outstanding 2019 winning projects. They exemplify how shotcrete placement creates high quality, durable concrete construction in a wide variety of applications. The projects demonstrate the inherent benefits of shotcrete, including enhanced sustainability, creativity, efficiency, strength and flexibility,” said Charles Hanskat, ASA executive director.

The winners were selected by an awards committee comprised of shotcrete professionals.

ACPA Member Joseph J. Albanese, Inc. (JJA) was the shotcrete contractor for the project selected to receive the Outstanding Architecture | New Construction Project award. Its Uber Mission Bay Tower Terraces in San Francisco project demonstrated the value of shotcrete as it was used to construct curved and sloping structural terrace walls with planter seats on the seventh floor of the two buildings at the New Chase Center in San Francisco.

Originally expected to be a form-and-pour project, JJA suggested that shotcrete was the best solution to create the sloped and curving walls envisioned by the architect. The firm set up a scaffold about 10 feet from the structure to support the slickline and hose. The complex project was completed ahead of schedule and with no safety incidents.
