Roger Meyer of Summit Concrete in Blue Springs, Missouri was selected as the recipient of this award for 2013. Summit concrete has made great leaps advancing the use of architectural tilt-up. Adapting the method to a Midwest “mindset,” Meyer and Summit developed a solid reputation for high-end detail and finishes most notably in retail applications. The building envelopes are known for incorporating thin brick, synthetic stucco, laid brick and laid stone, among other advanced techniques.
Foley states, "When Summit first introduced the tilt-up concept in 1985, they were the first to do so in a market where many said it couldn't be done. Further, it was a market dominated by large-span metal buildings. Roger pioneered and perfected many new techniques to address the concerns of the local architectural community. He has always been ready to try new things.”
Jim Baty, Technical Director for the TCA, stated “In addition to the market shaping work on building programs that Summit has become known, the work Roger and his company committed to for the TCA’s Korean War Memorial (dedicated during the 2011 Annual Convention to the City of Kansas City) was extraordinary and a great undertaking of generosity to both industry and community.”, Murray Parker Memorial Award
