Las Vegas, NV, May 1, 2014 -- Twelve tile and stone projects were recognized as part of the annual Coverings Installation & Design Awards, a program that honors outstanding design and installation of tile and stone in residential, commercial, sustainable and international projects.
The residential Grand Prize was awarded to Santa Monica-based Robert Kerr architecture design for a beachfront home. In the commercial category, the Grand Prize was awarded to Camarata Masonry Systems and PGAL for their restoration in the five-story atrium of a historical courthouse.
In 2014, a new category emerged for the CID Awards, recognizing sustainable projects. This year’s winning project was the Green House Building, an eight-story, single-phase office development in central Budapest.
Additionally, the CID Awards recognized nine other projects for exceptional work in tile and stone design and installation from around the world. Each project received a $1,000 cash prize.
