The purpose of the construction awards program is to showcase the high-quality construction offered by the association’s membership to the construction user market.

“Our annual awards contest continues to be a tremendous success, receiving wide support and accolades from both members and nonmembers.

“The construction user is becoming more and more aware of the capabilities of our members, and most major developers and owners understand the value of building with Merit Contractors,” said Geoffrey N. Zeh, president/CEO.

The awards were announced during a video presentation, which highlighted all of the projects entered in the competition.

ABC members who served as specialty contractors and suppliers on all the projects entered also were also recognized.

Competition finalists also received awards of merit.
