Associated Builders and Contractors today announced Warfel’s work on the Rydal Park Stream Restoration project in Jenkintown, PA 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.
Located on an active Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) campus, the Rydal Park Stream Restoration project commenced primarily to stop significant erosion. The existing stream bank had eroded out, potentially risking the stability of high-usage walking trails that are frequently enjoyed by neighborhood residents. Through extensive preconstruction planning, careful site management, and detailed considerations of environmental impacts, our team reconstructed the existing stream, returning it to its natural state.
“The craftmanship of Warfel Construction 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.
