Corporate Contractors Inc. was recognized for its work on two downtown Beloit Geronimo Hospitality projects—Hotel Goodwin | Velvet Buffalo Cafe and truk’t | Blue Collar Coffee. 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. Hotel Goodwin | Velvet Buffalo Cafe P roject—Gold Award This 1920s 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 a tight completion deadline. truk’t | Blue Collar Coffee P roject—Silver Award 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 resulted in two unique and alluring downtown destinations.
