Excellence in Construction 2019 Awards Announced

Two Downtown Beloit Projects will be awarded Gold and Silver

Earlier this fall Corporate Contractors Inc entered the Hotel Goodwin | Velvet Buffalo as well as the truk’t | Blue Collar Coffee projects into the ABC of Wisconsin Projects of Distinction Excellence in Construction Awards program. ABC recently announced the winners and both projects have been recognized in their perspective categories as two of Wisconsin’s most impressive and unique projects for 2019. They will be honored with awards on February 13th, 2020 in the Wisconsin Dells.

ABC’s POD awards program recognizes the most distinct construction projects throughout Wisconsin. An independent panel of judges evaluates all entries and winning projects are based on eight criteria: craftsmanship, execution/coordination, budget, scheduling, difficult and unusual challenges, owner/architect satisfaction, safety, and overall distinctiveness.

The Hotel Goodwin | Velvet Buffalo project recognized as a gold winner

A 1920’s professional building was meticulously transformed into an award-winning 34-room boutique hotel with roof-top terrace and elegant in-hotel restaurant and wine bar. The Hotel Goodwin| Velvet Buffalo Cafe adaptive reuse project required flexibility and superior contracting skills to overcome unexpected obstacles and tight completion deadline.

The truk’t | Blue Collar Coffee project recognized as a silver winner

Creative thinking, collaboration, and attention to detail helped a downtown Beloit dilapidated former bar in a run-down building become two distinct restaurants. Truk’t is a worldly street taco, whiskey, and tequila restaurant and across the corridor is Blue Collar Coffee, a cozy vintage industrial coffee shop. Meeting schedule, safety and quality goals despite unexpected challenges, the project created unique and alluring downtown destinations.
