CAL SMACNA Tom Guilfoy Memorial
  Craftsmanship Award for 2013

     Honorable Mention-Therma - A very unique and beautiful project was entered for the architectural category.  The committee was overwhelmed by its creativity and the sheer magnitude of the art piece.  Due to its uniqueness, it was impossible to judge against the other construction projects that were entered.  The committee recognized the piece as outside the normal for the industry and as such created the Honorable Mention category to showcase the extreme possibilities that can be obtained within our industry.  The Christmas Tree/Angel was designed by Nicki Parisi and built at Therma for their lobby.  Therma is located in San Jose, and a member of the Bay Area Chapter.

Congratulations to the Following Bay Area Chapter
