Stars Shine at the ASA Excellence in Construction Awards

It is Oscar season and while this wasn’t the event itself, last Friday night members of the Construction Citizen team attended the ASA-Houston Chapter’s 15th Annual Excellence in Construction Awards in Houston.  The annual ceremony is held to recognize those outstanding companies and individuals in 8 categories: General Contractor of the Year, Architect/Engineer of the Year, General Contractor Safety Award, Project Manager of the Year, Project Superintendent of the Year, Project of the Year Over $15 Million, Project of the Year between $5-$15 Million, and Project of the Year Under $5 Million.

The membership votes to select the 5 finalists in each category, and then they vote for the winners.  The results are tabulated by the event committee and are kept under lock and key in an old mason jar until the event itself.  And if this had been the Oscars, the Gilbane Building Company would be talked about as having swept the awards this year – walking away with five out of the eight top awards including General Contractor of the Year.

Mike Holland, president of the Houston Division of Marek Brothers Systems and Immediate Past President of the chapter acted as emcee for the awards ceremonies.

Later this week Brianna Boudreau, Executive Director of ASA-Houston Chapter and Construction Citizen’s newest blogger, will report more information about this annual event which went very smoothly under her organization.
