Suffield, CT – CMP Exterior, a Connecticut-based trade firm specializing in commercial exterior coverings, was recently honored with two project awards from CT ABC’s Excellence in Construction awards program, which was held Oct. 18.
CMP Exterior was recognized as a “Specialty Trade Contractor” for its work on the Ground Transportation Center at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks and the Vero at Orange Senior Living community in Orange.
CMP worked as a trade contractor for KBE Building Corporation on both projects, which each took first place in their categories at the annual event.
First Place-Mega Projects was awarded to the Ground Transportation Center project at Bradley International Airport. The 1.4 million sq. ft. facility for Conrac Solutions and the Connecticut Aviation Authority is part of the State of Connecticut’s expansion plans for the airport and provides a 4-story consolidated rental car facility and garage complex for six rental car agencies. A second 4-story garage provides fueling stations and full automotive repairs and service areas for the rental agencies. As part of its award-winning role, CMP coordinated the custom fabrication of the high-end fiber cement panels. Each panel had to be custom-measured and fabricated before installation atop the rain screen system on the buildings’ exterior.
First Place- Health Care/Large Projects was awarded to The Vero at Orange, a new, 3-story senior living community. The 163,022sf facility provides 78 independent living units, 69 assisted living units, and 28 memory care units, along with numerous amenities. CMP Exterior provided full installation of the James Hardie exterior fiber cement siding.
