Excellence In Construction


ABC Member companies have the opportunity to compete for honors in the construction industry’s premier awards program—the ABC Excellence in Construction Awards competition—that recognizes the outstanding merit shop project's innovation, quality and vision of the project team—contractors, architects, engineers, owners and others—who have played a vital role in the project's completion. Projects are judged on a variety of criteria such as safety, personnel management, quality control, scheduling and degree of difficulty.

Our member companies submitted 112 of the top projects in our chapter area (Gainesville to Naples). After judging was completed, winners were celebrated at the 2021 Excellence In Construction Awards Program held on Friday, May 7th at the Hilton Tampa Downtown.
