Jessup, MD- May 2015- Larsen Products Corp. has been honored with the Excellence in Construction Quality Award by the Association of Wall and Ceiling Industry (AWCI). Larsen Products bonding agents were a component in the reconstruction of St. Marys Cathedral Basilica in Galveston, Texas. The project won top honor in the Historic Renovation category.
Damaged during Hurricane Ike, a tropical cyclone that wrought havoc on parts of Texas in 2008, St. Marys Cathedral underwent major renovations over a period of six years. The restoration of the Cathedral, a state and national historic landmark, was praised by Reverend Joseph Limanni, special director of the archdiocese, as Wirst-rate, indicating that St. Marys is one of the architecturally most signiWicant structures in town.
We are proud to receive this award from the AWCI, said Jeff Larsen, president of Larsen Products. We are quite pleased that our products assisted in the renovation of this structure, a building with such historical signiWicance, without compromising the architectural integrity of the original.
