Ricop Construction Company of Columbus, Ohio, has been awarded an American Buildings Company (ABC) Excellence in Design Award in the category of Church/Religious for Fairfield Christian Church, Baltimore, Ohio. ABC’s Excellence in Design Award recognizes builders and roofers for their innovation and distinction in design.
The highly anticipated Excellence in Design Awards competition is open to all authorized ABC Builders and Architectural Metal Systems (AMS) Roofers. Winners are selected by an independent panel of judges.
This year, judges chose from more than 175 entries to select the best projects in each of the following categories: Agricultural; Church/Religious Center; Commercial; Government/Institutional; Manufacturing/Industrial; Office; Recreation; Retail; Roofing; Self Storage, Transportation; and Warehouse/Distribution.
In 2008, a new category was added for the first time, Green Facilities. Winners and honorable mentions are announced for each category. The nominees then go on to compete for the Excellence in Design’s top two awards: Building of the Year and Roof of the Year.
“It is always eye opening to see all of the amazing Excellence in Design submissions together,” says Ray Napolitan, president of American Buildings Company. “This year, we had many exceptional facilities nominated. We thank all those builders and roofers who entered their projects this year.”
