Middletown, CT – The Connecticut ABC honored C.E. Floyd with the First Place award in the Pre-Engineered Building category at the Virtual 2020 Excellence in Construction Awards on Oct. 22. The Connecticut ABC organized a virtual award ceremony that recognized the best that the merit shop has to offer.
Family-owned Big Y’s corporate vision is to “work together with our customers, our colleagues, and our communities to provide exceptional value and a personal shopping experience that makes daily life easier, more healthful and enjoyable.” The new distribution center allows Big Y to live up to their commitment with the ability to support 20 more stores and add 32 full time jobs.
C.E. Floyd, also a family-owned business, facilitated this by ensuring the warehouse remained fully operational through peak shopping seasons, an unexpected doubling of shipping demands, and a global pandemic. The Big Y Distribution Center is a continuation of the partnership between Big Y and C.E. Floyd (who have worked on over 10 projects together) and a mutual commitment to Building Visions and People.
C.E. Floyd’s chief operating officer, Chuck Tobin, commented after receiving the award, “The success of this project was only possible due to the unwavering commitment from our trade partners, staff, and Big Y. We all appreciated the opportunity Big Y gave us. The trust and commitment the Big Y team showed us from start to finish confirmed why they are ‘world class.’ I can’t praise our trade partners enough. Their help navigating through the evolving protocols and the labor and material challenges of the pandemic was critical; they were true partners.”
