Texas Golden Trowel Awards

The Texas Masonry Council (TMC) strives to achieve excellence in all aspects of construction by upholding high principles, inspiring distinction, and promoting quality in the members of this organization. Through the Golden Trowel Awards, the association recognizes architects who demonstrate excellence in design, as only excellent design gives skilled masons the challenge to excel in their field as well.

Every year, mason contractors submit projects to TMC chapter competitions on behalf of outstanding architects in the hopes that their joint achievements may be awarded the coveted Golden Trowel Award. A panel of distinguished judges is charged with the task of deciphering exceptional from excellent on the basis of design, craftsmanship, overall aesthetic appeal and difficulty. From their labors, a winner and an honorable mention award are presented in each of six categories.

The winner from each TMC chapter competition is then submitted to the state level competition and evaluated against each other by a panel of judges who choose the most exceptional projects from all 24 nominations.

This year's Golden Trowel Awards banquet was held on Aug. 20, at Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin.

TMC appreciates and offers sincere gratitude to the architects and contractors who honored these awards with their time and their talents.
