Limestone Building Group Receives National Excellence in Construction Award From Associated Builders and Contractors
TANNER, AL - April 23, 2020
Limestone Building Group today announced work on the Renovations to Limestone Building Group Home Office in Tanner, Alabama has earned a national Excellence in Construction® Pyramid Award, which will be presented during ABC Convention 2020 in Nashville, Tennessee, on Aug. 18. The EIC awards program is the industry’s leading competition that honors both general and specialty contractors for innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects.
“Limestone Building Group is honored to receive this award,” said Kerrick Whisenant, General Manager. “It is a testament to the hard work and determination of our employees and trade partners who were directly responsible for establishing and maintaining a culture of safety and quality.”
Built in 1984, the 7,000 square foot building served as the UAW union hall. Having sat vacant for over 2 years, the space was ill-kept without maintenance and finishes dating back to its original construction era. The building required renovations of major electrical components and mechanical systems, new windows throughout, demo of all flooring and ceilings. The interior also received drywall partition changes and patching, paint, door refinishing and new hardware. The exterior calico brick and rusted roof mansard were updated with earth tones to match Limestone Building Group’s color scheme as well as new signage.
“The craftmanship of Limestone Building Group and their hardworking employees continues to raise the bar when it comes to how we define excellence in construction,” said 2020 ABC National Chair Tim Keating, owner and president of R.C. Stevens Construction Co., Winter Garden, Florida. “It’s an honor to recognize these award winners for their respective commitments to building safely, on time and on budget, as well as contribute to the communities in which they work.”
The EIC award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. The winning projects, selected from entries across the nation, were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.
This year's panel included representatives from Building Owners and Managers Association International, Smithsonian Facilities Construction Division, Construction Management Association of America, Engineering News-Record, Design-Build Institute of America and various construction-related firms nationwide.
PeopleReady Skilled Trades is the presenting sponsor of the Excellence in Construction® Awards.
