Jose Noe Martinez won the 2016 Fastest Trowel on the Block Contest at this year’s World of Concrete.  The contest pitted journemen masons and their tenders against one another to see who could build the best 30 foot-long 8″ CMU wall in twenty minutes.  Contestants were judged on both the number of block they laid and the quality of their walls, including plumb, level, and joint consistency and size.  Mr. Martinez took home an $8,000 check for his twenty minutes work.  This was the first time he had competed in the Fastest Trowel contest.

The Fastest Trowel on the Block Contest is part of the Bricklayer 500 event sponsored by SpecMix.  Mortar Net Solutions was a proud Gold Level Sponsor of this event.
