New HNA Awards Categories and Judging Criteria Announced

March 23, 2018

Three new categories have been created for the 2018 Hardscape North America Project Awards:  Natural Stone (residential or commercial projects), Outdoor Living Feature (residential or commercial projects), and Vintage Installation (residential or commercial projects installed before 2008).

In addition, the HNA Awards Task Group announced the judging criteria for the 2018 Awards: (1) design including use of color, shape, texture and pattern; (2) quality of construction and craftsmanship; (3) compatibly with related construction materials and systems; (4) construction innovation; and (5) overall excellence. Companies submitting projects will be asked to briefly describe in writing and provide photos demonstrating how the project addressed each of these criteria.

HNA Awards submissions will open on April 30.  The Awards will be presented at the 2018 Hardscape North American trade show in October. To submit a project after the awards system is open or to learn more, click here.
