CONSTRUCTION CRAFT AWARDS CELEBRATED
Over 100 chapter members, students, guests, members of the construction industry and our 16 Craftsmanship Award Nominees gathered at the Ford Alumni Center last night to celebrate craftsmanship and the work the building industry does for our projects and our clients.
Those attending were treated to a thoughtful presentation on the detail of craft from the perspective of designer and architect Justin Allen of Berlin, Germany, and Stott visiting professor this term in the UO Interior Architecture program. Justin shared his story of the evolution of his work experience, with a spotlight on the detail of construction craft at its finest and a call for gender equity in all aspects of construction.
The 2019 Craftsmanship Award winners were selected by a jury made up of chapter members, past award winners, and other members of the local construction industry. This year the following individuals join the list of over 180 other craftsman who have been previously honored since the chapter first started this awards program back in 1953:
Steve Baker, Sheet Metal Worker, Smith Sheet Metal
Erica Ann Bush, Natural Plasterer, Day One Design, LLC
Charlotte Curtis, Commercial Plans Examiner, City of Eugene
Jon McCoy, Construction Superintendent, Chambers Construction
Robin Olofson, Cabinet Maker, Yankee Built
Gordon Rea, Construction Superintendent, McKenzie Commercial Contractors, Inc.
