What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. So is the case with the recent AWCI Annual Meeting and Intex Tradeshow where ClarkDietrich received three awards for construction quality and innovation.

AWCI’s Excellence in Construction Innovation Award recognizes products, services, materials, technologies or systems that improve the means and methods utilized in the wall and ceiling industry. This year, ClarkDietrich’s TRAKLOC 20EQ 24 mil product received this award. The integration of high-strength steel into a challenging roll-formed component with its unique feature that allows contractors to order a one-length member and adjust the length accordingly to make up for variances in the slab. This is unlike traditional steel studs, which are cut to length for varying jobsite conditions. 

The TRAKLOC system consists of traditional-style framing member combined with an interlocking adjustable component. This allows for telescopic length adjustments while keeping the members solidly locked in place and eliminates the need for screws, fasteners and most connections. 

AWCI’s Excellence in Construction Quality Award recognizes superiority in construction quality in the face of complicated and challenging projects in multiple different categories. ClarkDietrich received the award in not just one but two categories; Interior Plastering and EIFS. 

San Antonio-based contractor, MK Marlow Company, won the Construction Quality Award in the Interior Plastering category for its work on the Santa Rosa Chapel project at the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio. As part of the build team, ClarkDietrich’s ProSTUD drywall framing system made it possible for multiple layers of an acoustical plaster system to outline the 55,000-square foot chapel. 

The winning project in the EIFS category was for the Marriott Residence Inn University District in Seattle, Washington with Applied Restoration as the installing contractor based out of Southern California. ClarkDietrich’s Vinyl Corp. products played a significant role in helping overcome the complexity of the exterior insulation and finishing system of this 191,732-square foot building.

ClarkDietrich is extremely proud of these accomplishments and would like to thank AWCI for these honorable recognitions.
