Merit Shop Contractors Recognized for Project Excellence & Safety

Annapolis, MD - The Chesapeake Shores Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) honored winners of our annual Excellence in Construction & Safety Awards on September 20th at The Hotel at Arundel Preserve in Hanover, MD. 

The Excellence in Construction Awards recognizes outstanding construction projects completed by ABC Chesapeake Shores’ member firms.  The awards competition serves to raise the level of construction standards throughout the industry by recognizing the workmanship of those who contribute and by showcasing the results of their dedication. 

The projects submitted in this year’s awards competition consisted of specialty contracting and general contracting categories varying from electrical and mechanical to commercial, excavation/site work, historical restoration, residential, and more. Each submission was carefully assessed by a team of volunteer judges using rigorous criteria. Scores produced by the evaluations determined the projects Excellence or Merit status. 

In addition, the awards banquet featured several top awards that the volunteer judges gave to companies that deserved a higher level of recognition. The prestigious Project of the Year was awarded to two outstanding companies – Gilbane Building Company won Project of the Year under $100 Million for their work on Howard Community College Science Engineering & Technology Building and Allan Myers was awarded Project of the Year over $100 Million for the Maryland 404 Dualization Design Build. Along with Project of the Year, ABC Chesapeake Shores honored Scaffold Resource, LLC with Specialty Contractor of the Year for the extreme complexity, uniqueness, attention to detail, and ingenuity on the HUD Building as well as the continued demonstration and implementation of safety on the jobsite.

The evening also honored Safety Award recipients for their participation in the Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) and Chapter Safety competition. These programs showcase companies within ABC that lead the industry in workplace safety by adhering to strict safety programming to ensure a cohesive safety culture.
