BRONX, NY - The Marble Institute of America (MIA) recently honored Mario Sardo of Fordham Marble of the Bronx, NY, with a Pinnacle Award of Merit for outstanding use of stone. The company received the award for the stonework inside a Fifth Avenue apartment building in New York. Sardo explained that the greatest challenge he faced was the practical nature of the material, which is very fragile, along with the complexity of the fabrication. Fordham Marble did all the work on a Brembana CNC machine, and the company is reported to be the first fabrication shop to install a CNC machine in the U.S. for stoneworking.
