MWH Receives National Excellence in Construction Award From ABC
Broomfield, CO — MWH’s work on the Fremont Water Pollution Control Center Improvements Project in Fremont, Ohio has earned a National Excellence in Construction® Pyramid Award from Associated Builders and Contractors in the General Contractor – Public Works/Environmental Category. Representatives from the company received the award March 27 during ABC’s 29th annual Excellence in Construction® Awards gala at ABC Convention 2019 in Long Beach, California.
This award-winning $63.5 million CMAR project included upgrading and expanding the existing wastewater collection system, which was originally built in 1949. The system is a combined sewer overflow that conveys dry weather flow to the wastewater plant at approximately 6 million gallons per day (mgd). The reason for the renovation is to increase the capacity of the Wastewater Treatment Facility from 10 million gallons per day to 24 million gallons per day.
“We are proud to honor MWH with a National Excellence in Construction® Pyramid Award,” said 2019 ABC National Chair Tony Rader, telecom vice president of National Roofing Partners, Coppell, Texas. “The Fremont Water Pollution Control Center Project shows not only the exceptional talent in our industry, but the overall commitment to building safely, on time and on budget. MWH’s breadth of skills and craftmanship greatly benefits the merit shop construction industry.”
The Excellence in Construction awards program is the industry’s leading competition that honors both general and specialty contractors for innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects. The award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. The winning projects, selected from entries submitted from across the nation, were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.
A panel of industry experts served as the competition’s judges. This year’s panel included representatives from the Building Owners and Managers Association International, the Smithsonian Facilities Construction Division, the Construction Management Association of America, Engineering News-Record, Design-Build Institute of America and various construction-related firms nationwide.
