The Metro Washington and Virginia Chapters of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) honored the winners of the 36th annual Excellence in Construction Awards, September 14th, at the Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner, VA. The annual Excellence in Construction Awards recognizes and celebrates outstanding projects built by Washington-area ABC members. The awards competition serves to raise the level of construction standards throughout the industry by recognizing the workmanship of those who contribute and by showcasing the results of their dedication. Bausum & Duckett has earned a prestigious “2017 Excellent in Construction” award from the Metro Washington and Virginia Chapters of Associated Builders and Contractors. This recognition was for our work on the “Insignia on M” project. This was a complex project comprised of 324 Luxury Apartments at the Navy Yard-Ballpark Metro Station. “Awards like this from our peers in the building industry are particularly meaningful,” says B&D president Mark Llewellyn, “We are very proud of the entire Bausum & Duckett team!” The award was presented September 14, at the Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner as part of the ABC’s annual Excellence in Construction awards dinner. ABC contractors entered more than 130 projects in categories including commercial, commercial/residential renovation, drywall, educational, electrical, excavation/site preparation, heavy/industrial/transportation, historic restoration, industrial, institutional, interiors, landscaping, masonry, mechanical, medical renovation, mega project, mixed use, residential, restaurant interior build-out, retail, and specialty. “These winning projects highlight and honor the extraordinary teamwork between general contractors, architects and engineers, specialty contractors, and material suppliers,” said Patrick J. Dean, president, ABC Virginia Chapter. A large panel of industry experts served as the competition’s judges. This year’s panel included industry professionals from a cross-section of the building industry, including architects, owners, government officials, and other industry leaders around the Washington metro-area.
