ABC Keystone Awards Top Contractors

(MANHEIM, Pa.) The Keystone Chapter of Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) recognized local member contractor firms for work performed on area construction projects during the 27th annual ABC Excellence in Construction Awards Gala. The Gala was held November 2, 2016, at the Eden Resort & Suites, Lancaster.

An element of surprise was included in the awards program as the Project of the Year was announced. The criteria for this award were its subjective ‘WOW’ factor (in no particular order):
  • Community Impact
  • Client Satisfaction
  • Design Features
  • Positive notoriety or high-profile of the project

The 2016 Project of the Year was awarded to Logan Park - Rife Run Floodplain Restoration, Manheim, PA. Congratulations to B.R. Kreider & Son, Inc., Manheim, for their Excellence Award submittal of the Logan Park - Rife Run Floodplain Restoration project in the Miscellaneous/Special Projects category. The work of this project contributed to the solution of the Chiques Creek Watershed by reducing non-point source pollution and improving water quality. It also provides an excellent educational opportunity as it is in a public park and serves as a model for other communities. Because of careful planning and cooperation among the very dedicated project partners, B.R. Kreider & Son, Inc., overcame the multiple flooding events and wet working conditions to complete the project on time and within budget.

This year, our Project of the Year Award finalists - listed in alpha order - included:
  1. Benchmark Construction Company, Inc. for Linear Accelerator Renovation
  2. Frey Lutz Corp. - HVAC for Donegal Mutual Insurance New Boiler Plant
  3. B.R. Kreider & Son, Inc. for Logan Park - Rife Run Floodplain Restoration
  4. Meadow Valley Electric, Inc. - Electrical for North Cornwall Medical Center
  5. Warfel Construction Company for Masonic Village at Lafayette Hill Apartments

The event was SOLD OUT with 300 contractors, project owners, design professionals and guests in attendance to celebrate.

This year’s program featured 59 entries, judged using specific criteria regarding the quality of construction and workmanship by a panel of construction design professionals.
  • The Excellence Award, the top honor, was given to the top winner of each category that scored a minimum of 85 points.
  • The Merit Award, second place, was given to all other projects within each category that scored 80 or more points.

The winners at the Keystone Chapter are now eligible to enter at the National level, and compete against the best in the industry from all 70 ABC chapters, nationwide.
