Gorski Engineering’s work on the construction of a new fire station for Limerick Fire Company has earned the company a National Excellence in Construction® Pyramid Award from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) in the pre-engineered building category. Kathy and Jerry Gorski received the award March 21 during ABC’s 28th annual Excellence in Construction Awards celebration at ABC Convention 2018 in Long Beach, Calif. This is Gorski Engineering’s 17th national award since 1997.
“Gorski Engineering earned this Excellence in Construction Pyramid Award through their outstanding craftsmanship, teamwork and world-class safety processes, and Associated Builders and Contractors is pleased to honor them,” said 2018 ABC National Chair George R. Nash Jr., director of preconstruction at Branch & Associates in Herndon, Va. “The uncompromising commitment to top-quality construction from Gorski Engineering’s team was clear from start to finish in building this new fire station. ABC is proud to claim these leaders in the merit shop construction industry among its members.”
“We are proud to have been chosen to build this unique project for a dedicated group of first responders. The pre-engineered building solution we provided brought down the cost of earlier designs and allowed the project to be completed under budget,” said Jerry Gorski, President of Gorski Engineering. In addition to the fire station, the building houses the Limerick Township Emergency Response Center and Emergency Medical Services. Gorski Engineering, based in Collegeville, provides design-build construction services to commercial, industrial and institutional clients throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.
The Excellence in Construction awards program is the industry’s leading competition that honors contractors for innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects. The winning projects, selected from hundreds of entries submitted from across the nation, were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost. A panel of industry experts served as the competition’s judges. This year’s panel included representatives from the Building Owners and Managers Association International, the Smithsonian Facilities Construction Division, the Construction Management Association of America, Engineering News-Record, Design-Build Institute of America and various construction-related firms nationwide.
