Century Group Inc. Participates in Sulphur High School 100 Year Anniversary

On April 20, 2013 Century Group Inc. and the Vincent family participated in the celebration of Sulphur High School’s 100 year anniversary. President and C.E.O. of Century Group George Hardy Vincent was also inducted into the high school’s Hall of Fame for his many decades of participation and support in the Sulphur community.

Continuing its reputation as a supporter of the community Century Group donated precast concrete benches which were custom built to allow for space in the base of the bench to secure time capsules which contained artifacts from past decades of Sulphur High School classes. After the event the time capsules were placed in the base of the precast benches and then secured by placing a large bull nose concrete bench top on the base securing the artifacts.

The precast concrete benches featured a custom buff color and graphics cast into the concrete identifying the unique structures. Precast concrete trash receptacles were manufactured with the SHS graphics cast into the concrete.

Century Group Provides Precast Concrete Bench Tops for Lakefront Promenade

Century Group played a part in the construction of the Lakefront Promenade at the Lake Charles Civic Center by manufacturing precast concrete bench tops for sitting areas throughout the new development along the lakefront.

The custom colored precast concrete bench tops featured several different designs including a design which called for the tops to be cast in a radius to fit around a fountain named "The Louisiana Landing Fountain” featuring a bronze sculpture of geese as its center piece making it a one-of-a-kind entrance point to the promenade. The bronze geese sculpture was designed and developed by Kent Ulbert, a highly recognized wildlife sculptor and creator of many other wildlife sculptures featured across the world.

Century Group’s precast concrete bench tops were also located at various other areas along the lake front. Century Group’s Hunter Vincent commented, "It was a privilege to have been able to be a part of such a first class project by providing the custom designed concrete bench tops for the Lakefront Promenade project. We appreciate Trahan Construction for giving us the opportunity to be their supplier for the concrete bench tops and look forward to working with them on other projects.”
