RELCO Companies Recognized for “Excellence in Construction”

Waltham, MA – The Massachusetts Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors congratulates The RELCO Companies of South Easton, MA for receiving the Merit Award at the 23rd annual Excellence in Construction Awards for their outstanding work on N.E. Ruffnecks Baseball Complex located in Northborough.

Over 200 ABC members gathered at the Westin Waltham Hotel for the annual Excellence in Construction Awards banquet to recognize and celebrate the very best construction projects its companies have to offer. This year’s applicant pool was particularly competitive, with each award winner selected for their high standards of craftsmanship, safety and quality that is a direct result from capitalizing on the talents of merit shop workers and the efficiency of the merit shop approach. “Our companies are committed to providing the highest quality of work in a safe and efficient manner. Tonight is a great night to recognize their achievements and celebrate the merit shop construction industry as a whole,” said ABC MA President Greg Beeman.

The Merit Award recognizes the overall excellence in project execution, craftsmanship, safety, innovative elements and challenges, and client satisfaction. The RELCO Companies took home the Merit Award, representing work that stands above the rest, for its work on N.E. Ruffnecks Baseball Complex. This design-build compound is a three-field synthetic baseball complex complete with concessions, restrooms, a maintenance garage, parking lot, and additional square footage for future expansion. The complex is equipped to host tournaments for teams throughout New England. RELCO completed the electrical design and self performed the electrical and tel/data installation components. As the project engulfed thirty acres of land, RELCO provided a dedicated rack truck and driver/laborer to assist with material procurement and tool delivery. This increased the field team’s efficiency and productivity by reducing laborer travel time to and from the material staging area.

The Massachusetts Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors is the largest construction trade association in the Commonwealth, representing some 400 local general contractor, subcontractor, and supplier and associate companies.  These companies employ more than 20,000 workers throughout Massachusetts.
