Eastern Corporation of Marietta recently was awarded the American Buildings Company Excellence in Design 2014 Roof of the Year Award for Central Alabama Community College in Alexander City, Ala. The company was also awarded second place in the Government/Institutional category for Rabun County Primary School in Tiger. ABC’s Excellence in Design Awards 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 roofers. Winners are selected by an independent panel of judges.

This year, judges chose from 128 entries to select the best projects in each of the following categories – Agricultural, Auto Dealerships, Church/Religious Center, Commercial, Government/Institutional, Green Building, Manufacturing/Industrial, Office, Recreation, Retail, Roofing, Transportation, Self Storage, Special Projects and Warehouse/Distribution.

Winners and honorable mentions are announced for each category. All entries are eligible to compete for the Excellence in Design’s top two overall awards: Building of the Year and Roof of the Year. 

“We were impressed with the many extraordinary projects that were entered in this year’s Excellence in Design awards,” said Ron Kuenkler, general manager of American Buildings’ South Division. “We are honored to work with such a talented group of builders and roofers who exemplify innovation in metal systems construction.”
