Winners of this year’s ABC of Western Washington awards demonstrated excellence and resilience during a period of unprecedented challenges in the building industry. Working through labor and supply chain issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, local ABC companies completed a wide range of buildings — from health care facilities to residential developments.

These awards credit all individuals within the teams responsible for producing winning projects, from subcontractors and suppliers, to owners, architects and engineers. This is also an opportunity to celebrate ABC of Western Washington members’ commitment to the merit shop philosophy, where work is awarded to the most qualified and lowest bidder regardless of labor affiliation.

This year’s judges were Van Collins, CEO/president, ACEC Washington; Glen Kuntz, safety director, Tekton Group; Ben Minnick, construction/special sections editor, Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce; Greg Gilda, vice president — Seattle, DCI Engineers; and Jeffrey Pulliam, construction management instructor, Renton Technical College.
