ABC's awards program is designed to publicly recognize the quality and innovation of merit shop construction and to honor all the members of the construction team, including the contractor, the owner and the design team responsible for the project. The winning projects were selected from entries submitted across the state and were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unusual challenges, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety, and budget.

The project entailed proper scheduling of materials and sequencing of subcontracting work.  In the end, this project was both functional and aesthetically appealing.  Lyon Contracting, Inc. completed the project on time and on budget. 

“This project is a clear example of the high-quality work merit shop contractors perform every day,” 2019 MN ABC Chairman Michael Winiecki said at the awards event.
