After celebrating remotely last year due to the pandemic, over 175 ABC MA winners gathered at the Burlington Marriott last week to honor the 2021 Excellence in Construction Award winners.


The pandemic also made it impossible to hold our annual Safety Night last May, so we also honored this year's Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze STEP Safety Award winners.


The applicant pool for the 29th annual awards was particularly competitive, with each winner selected for the high standards of craftsmanship, safety and quality delivered by talented merit shop workers using the efficient merit shop approach. 


Thanks goes out to this year’s panel of independent judges for the time and talent they contributed to selecting our winners. They are:

·      Ken Bromfield, P.E., Independent Engineering Consultant

·      Carolyn Day, AIA, Perkins Eastman

·      George Khouri, George Khouri & Associates

·      Timothy Letton, P.E., GPI

·      Laurence Spang, AIA, Arrowstreet


This year’s winners included five Merit and seven Eagle awards. Merit awards recognize overall excellence in project execution, craftsmanship, safety, innovative elements and challenges, and client satisfaction. Eagle awards represent the pinnacle of achievement in the construction industry. The winners are:
