Gracom and Graham Winner of Institutional Project of the Year

Gracom and Graham recently won the Award for the Institutional Project of the Year for their work on the Academic Health Sciences Building, 'D' Wing, at the University of Saskatchewan. Gracom was the masonry contractor for the project while Graham was the general contractor.

This high profile project had some high expectations. The team's biggest challenge was matching new stone with the original random ashlar pattern split-faced dolomite limestone to the original 'A' wing from 1948. The quality expectations for all of the building components with specific reference to size, pattern, colour and pitching techniques required Gracom to match up exactly with the adjoining original structure.

Masonry Construction's Project of the Year awards exemplifies masonry contractors' contributions, including helping architects and engineers create the best masonry has to offer, problem solving, teamwork, restoration, repair work and sustainable construction.
