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.

The highly anticipated Excellence in Design Awards competition is open to all authorized ABC Builders and Architectural Metal Systems (AMS) roofers. Winners were selected by an independent panel of judges.

This year, judges chose from 140 entries and selected the best projects in each of the following categories: Agricultural; Auto Dealership; Church/Religious Centre;Commercial; Government/Institutional; Manufacturing/Industrial; Miscellaneous; Office; Recreation; Retail; Roofing; Transportation; and Warehouse/Distribution.

Winners and honourable mentions were announced for each category and are eligible to compete for the Excellence in Design top award: 2016 Building of the Year.

“Each year the Excellence in Design Awards impresses us with projects that showcase innovation in metal systems construction,” said William Schwartz, general manager of American Buildings’ West Division. “We are honoured to work with a remarkable group of Roofers and Builders.”
