Douglas Veldman Named Alberta’s Best Bricklayer
Calgary, AB – The best masons in Alberta came together to test their skill, speed and stamina by battling to see who could build the biggest and best 26-foot-long brick wall in one hour. The event is one of several SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500® Regional Series competitions to be held across North America in 2020. The winner of each regional qualifies to compete in the 2021 World Championship at the World of Concrete expo in Las Vegas.
Five teams of masons and tenders lined the arena at the I-XL Building Products in Calgary, AB ready to prove they’re the best craftsmen in the region. Mason Douglas Veldman and mason tender Daniel Veldman with Veldman Masonry in Calgary, AB took home top honors with an adjusted brick count of 582. Douglas also took the title, SPEC MIX TOP CRAFTSMAN, which goes to the mason who builds the “most sellable” wall. In total, the Veldman brothers won a free trip to Las Vegas for the World Championship, $900 in cash, a $200 gift card from Ford Trucks, a Marshalltown tool bag, Stabila Level and the title, “Alberta’s Best Bricklayer.”
