Local Construction Firms take Wins in Regional Awards!

Thursday night, at the Fountain Head Country Club in Hagerstown, the Cumberland Valley Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) recognized the most innovative and high-quality construction projects and safety programs in the tri-state area.

This year's awards and Gala were highly anticipated, with ABC not having their awards in 2020 due to the Global Corona Virus Pandemic. However, ABC Cumberland Valley honored both 2019 and 2020 and had one of the most significant years ever for entries! 

There were representatives from Construction firms, Local Government, and local nonprofits in attendance this year to find out who the much-anticipated winners of the Eagle awards would be. This group came together to celebrate the feats they have accomplished in safety and construction craftsmanship and celebrate what these projects will do for the local communities in the region! All of the winners had terrific projects in our local area ranging from a Family Fun Center in Frederick to an excellent life-saving pharmaceuticals plant! 

ABC is proud to showcase such projects each year. The competition showcases the highest quality of safety, innovation, and craft. This competition is a staple of the construction industry. ABC is pleased to announce all the winners for 2021!
