Annapolis, MD, September 24, 2015:

ABC Chesapeake Shores honored the best in the construction industry at the annual Excellence in Construction, STEP & Safety Awards Ceremony on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at the Westin Annapolis Hotel. Willow Construction, LLC was a stand-out company having earned a number of awards including a SILVER STEP award for 2015. ABC’s National Safety Training and Evaluation Process, known as STEP recognizes the efforts of ABC members that strive to achieve effective safety practices at their firms and provides contractors with a tool to objectively evaluate their safety programs, policies, procedures and training.

Willow Construction, LLC was also honored with an Excellence in Construction award in the Restoration/Renovation category for the Wye River Upper School project. The Wye River Upper School project was the renovation of an existing armory originally built in 1926 to be re-purposed as a school. The building had remained more or less vacant since the 1980’s. The design of the project maintained many historical qualities of the building while incorporating functional design for use as a school and modernization with sustainability. Willow Construction, LLC served as the Construction Manager for this project.
