MIDLAND, Va. – Officials at Smith-Midland Corporation recently received a prestigious award for a new product designed to reduce or reverse the effects of shoreline erosion.
The company’s submission, for its Beach Prisms , garnered a judges’ award in the National Precast Concrete Association’s Creative Use of Precast (CUP) awards program.
The CUP awards program is an annual competition for NPCA Members, recognizing projects promoting innovative and cost-saving advantages of precast concrete over competing materials. This year’s winners were announced at the Salute to Excellence Awards Dinner during the Manufactured Concrete Products Expo, MCPX, and Annual Convention on Feb. 24 in Orlando, Fla.
“Our experience has proven that Beach Prisms either slow the rate of shore erosion, stop erosion or reverse erosion by replenishing sand in front of and behind the Prisms,” says Ashley Smith, Smith-Midland’s vice president for sales and marketing.
