MTech Mechanical today announced work on the UCCS William J. Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. has earned the company a national Excellence in Construction® Eagle Award, presented during ABC Convention 2021 in Grapevine, Texas, on March 10. The EIC awards program is the industry’s leading competition that honors both general and specialty contractors for world-class, safe and innovative construction projects.
The William J. Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center is truly unique; integrating education, healthcare and research with partners from the University of Colorado Colorado Springs and Centura Health. It is expected that 400 patients and clients and 1,400 students will visit the center per day. The facility will allow for increased growth and participation in multiple UCCS degree programs including exercise science and human anatomy and physiology.
“For more than 30 years, ABC has honored award-winning construction projects like UCCS Hybl Center because the work by the team at MTech Mechanical exemplifies excellence in our industry,” said 2021 ABC National Chair of the Board of Directors Steve Klessig, vice president of architecture and engineering, Keller Inc., Kaukauna, Wisconsin. “This world-class construction project is a vital part of our economic engine, built safely, on time and under budget, and it is an honor to congratulate MTech for their commitment to setting the standard for excellence in construction.”
The national EIC award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. The winning projects, selected from entries across the nation, were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.
