6th place went to the Edmonton Construction Association – Claude Alston Award

Edmonton Construction Association isn’t a new client to Behrends, in fact Behrends created the original award for them many years ago. They approached us last year to update and modernize the award. We were thrilled with the result and that’s why it made it into our top 10.

This plaque had a cast replica of the original poem written by John McCrae.

This beautiful memorial piece was in memory of Jason Christopher who passed away in 2007. This aluminum plaque is 60.5” x 17”. It had a cast aluminum hard hat and sculpted flower wreath which was designed and cast by Behrends. This piece was breath taking and made our #1 choice for the best of 2015.
