CCI Receives National Award of Excellence
Corporate Contractors Inc. Receives National Excellence in Construction Award From Associated Builders and Contractors
(BELOIT, WI) April 5, 2019—Corporate Contractor Inc.’s work on the Stateline Family YMCA project in Beloit, WI has earned a National Excellence in Construction® Pyramid Award from Associated Builders and Contractors in the General Contractor > Renovation – $10 to $100 million category. A representative from the company received the award March 27 during ABC’s 29th annual Excellence in Construction® Awards gala at ABC Convention 2019 in Long Beach, California.
“Over the last couple years there have only been a few Wisconsin general contractors who have been recognized at the national level,” commented Brad Austin, CCI President. “We are excited and honored to be part of that small elite group.”
Austin continued, “There is no other Y facility like this in the country and I’m extremely proud of our team and what we accomplished. Doug Britt and his group at the Y are amazing partners and I’m thrilled to see their continued success since opening.”
The CCI build-team successfully completed a challenging renovation of an 80,000 square foot former manufacturing site into a one-of-a-kind YMCA athletic facility. With its methodically preserved industrial character, the center features an indoor water park with three pool areas and whirlpool, childcare facilities, basketball court, racket ball courts, three locker rooms, exercise rooms, a second-floor rubber running track, multi-purpose rooms, fitness center, weight room, wellness center, and administrative office areas. There was not an area that remained untouched by the extensive transformation.
“We are proud to honor Corporate Contractors Inc. with a National Excellence in Construction® Pyramid Award,” said 2019 ABC National Chair Tony Rader, telecom vice president of National Roofing Partners, Coppell, Texas. “The Stateline Family YMCA project shows not only the exceptional talent in our industry, but the overall commitment to building safely, on time and on budget. CCI’s breadth of skills and craftmanship greatly benefits the merit shop construction industry.”
