Central PA-based Poole Anderson Construction receives two National Excellence in Construction® Awards for their work on the Weis Markets Store #225 and the Juniata College Winton Hill Athletic Complex projects. The Pyramid Awards were given recently during Associated Builders and Contractors’ 28th Annual Excellence in Construction® Awards celebration at the ABC National Convention in Long Beach, CA.

ABC’s Awards of Excellence Program has become the premier competition within the construction industry that recognizes outstanding construction projects across the nation. The winning projects, selected from entries submitted from across the nation, were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.

The Weis Markets Store #225 located in Enola, PA won in the category General Contractor – Commercial $5 to $10 million. Poole Anderson has completed several projects for Weis but this store was the result of a dynamic process in which Poole Anderson’s team suggested design improvements to a unique new prototype with features such as a beer growler station; stir fry station; flower market and a juice station.

The 56,000 SF facility includes environmentally friendly elements such as LED lighting and skylights to provide natural light and reduce electric lighting needs. Enclosed refrigeration cases reduce energy and advanced refrigeration technologies to reduce refrigerant emissions by 60 percent, compared to typical supermarket systems.

Juniata College’s Winton Hill Athletic Complex in Huntingdon, PA won in the category General Contractor – Institutional Less than $5 million. The vision for the project was to provide a campus gateway facility in support of sports that are growing in success and popularity at Juniata. Expected to help drive enrollment of students with high academic success, it will also provide 100 varsity athletes the finest competition facility in their conference. It includes space for practices as well as opportunities for revenue via camps and clinics. Poole Anderson enjoys a long standing partnership with the College.
