L. M. Scofield Company is pleased to announce the winners of the Third Annual Decorative Concrete Awards contest. This contest is open to any contractor, architect or designer who uses or specifies Scofield Systems.
For the second year in a row, the Grand Prize was awarded to Lou DeCillis of Artistic Flooring Systems of West Bloomfield, MI. for his innovative use of stain work on the floor for Lido Gallery and Gifts. Even though this wasn't a large job (the lobby and reception area for a new art gallery), the owner wanted a very dramatic and stunning floor. "Art on the floor," was the way DeCillis described it.
Described as "an impressionist painting on concrete" the floor was created with a combination of Lithochrome Chemstain Classic, Lithochrome Tintura Stain and Scofield Formula One Liquid Dye Concentrate, then sealed with Scofield Selectseal-S. Departing from the "graphic design" look of most decorative concrete artisans, DeCillis used the colors in a loose, painterly fashion, creating a floor that is as much a work of art as the pieces that the gallery houses.
The first runner-up was Surfacing Solutions, Inc. in Temecula, CA, for their vibrant commercial building entry patio for Camden Development using Lithochrome Tintura Stain. Second runner-up was Donlon Coatings of MA for their use of Lithochrome Tintura Stain on the Miller's River Bridge DOT project.
