Forrester Wins Three Trade Association Awards. In the past month, two area trade association groups recognized some of Forrester Construction Company’s recent work as among the best local construction projects of the year. In September, Forrester accepted two 2015 Excellence in Construction Awards from the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Metro Washington for work on the Coastal Flats Restaurant in Gaithersburg, Maryland and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Chancery Annex in Washington, District of Columbia. Last week the UAE Chancery Annex project also received a 2015 Award of Merit from NAIOP’s DC | MD Chapter. Both associations’ awards celebrate outstanding DC Metro area construction projects, and as ABC Metro noted, “raise the level of construction standards throughout the industry by recognizing the workmanship of those who contribute and by showcasing the results of their dedication”.
Forrester Wins Three Trade Association Awards For Local Construction Projects
To win ABC Metro Washington’s Excellence in Construction Awards, Forrester’s Coastal Flats and UAE Chancery Annex projects competed against more than 130 projects across all categories to take home top prizes in the Restaurant Interiors and Historic Renovation respectively. Over 100 judges reviewed entry submittals and visited each project site judging them on attractiveness, complexity, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, cost and safety. For the UAE Chancery Annex project, taking home the prize in NAIOP DC | MD Chapter’s Award of Merit for Best Renovation / Adaptive Re-Use involved meeting similar stringent judging criteria.
