International Landscaping Inc., a landscaping firm in Milton, Ont., is the lone Canadian finalist in Global AquaTekture Visionary Award’s (GAVA’s) second annual international design competition.
A total of 45 finalists, in both residential and commercial divisions, are vying for gold, silver and bronze awards in the event sponsored by Structure Studios, Zodiac/Jandy Pool Products, Paramount Pool and Spa Systems and Pebble Technologies Inc.
International Landscaping is competing against two U.S. firms, Stonecrest Pools (Southlake, Texas) and Pool Works Inc. (Sterling Heights, Mich.) in the ‘Traditional Pools’ category. Judges from several disciplines will rate the entries on atypical designs and innovative applications that surpass the boundaries of traditional water features.
Winners will be announced at the GAVA awards reception on Tuesday, Nov. 2, at EVE Night Club in Crystals at CityCenter in Las Vegas, Nev. All GAVA finalists will be included in a full-colour book published by Schiffer Publishing, due for release in spring 2011.
