2016 AWCI's Excellence in Construction Quality Award - The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Exteriors


KHS&S was honored with receiving the 2016 AWCI's Excellence in Construction Quality Award for The Wizarding World Harry Potter - Exteriors. With the precision of master craftsmen, KHS&S utilized unique systems and materials to bring these buildings to life and put visitors right in the middle of the spellbinding action. Buildings were meant to look aged over 300 years old, weathered and damaged. Finishes replicated worn and weathered stone, plaster, metals, and wood with these facades reflecting techniques that were applied over the framing and sheathing, including plaster, EIFS, wood cladding, FRP, GFRC, and various themed elements.
