Phoenix Construction Inc., of Fernie British Columbia, was recently awarded an American Buildings Company (ABC) Excellence in Design Award. The award recognizes Builders and Roofers for their innovation and distinction in design in the metal buildings industry. Phoenix Construction won in the Auto Dealership category for Fernie Ford.
This 20,710-square-foot building is a unique Ford design, as it had to meet the town’s architectural requirements of a rustic mountain village. ABC supplied the structural steel and roof of the shop.
