Concord, NH – Associated Builders and Contractors of New Hampshire/Vermont (ABC NH/VT) held this year’s Excellence in Construction (EiC) Award reception at the Manchester DoubleTree Hotel on Nov. 3. The EiC awards program honors contractors for world-class, safe, and innovative construction projects.
The EiC awards honor every member of the construction team, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. The winning projects are selected from entries across New Hampshire and Vermont and are judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost. A panel of industry experts served as the competition’s judges.
PROCON was the 2022 recipient of the Chairman’s Award for its work on the Joyce Cummings Center at Tufts University in Medford, Mass. PROCON designed and built the 150,000sf, 7-story academic building, which houses classrooms, seminar rooms, meeting space, research labs, offices, and a 160-seat auditorium. Elements of the Cummings Center building that contributed to the recognition include PROCON’s unique and sustainable design and pre-construction planning strategies, including significant coordination with Tufts University and various utilities and public transportation entities.
Metro Walls received two Excellence Awards for its work on EMD Serono’s Horizon Building in Billerica, Mass. and the Lincoln Lofts project, located in Biddeford, Maine. Lincoln Lofts is a 5-story, 305,000sf mill building that includes 180,000sf of 148 luxury loft rentals, a fitness facility, rooftop terrace, and restaurant. Metro Walls representatives say the firm’s ability to safely complete the labor-intensive scope of work in this 1850s brick building, while collaborating and coordinating with the other trades, required patience and the ability to constantly adapt to challenges that arose due to the age of the building.
