TAYLOR, Mich., March 31, 2009 — Southeast Mich.-based J.S. Vig Construction, a full-service general contractor and construction management company, has received the prestigious 2009 Pyramid Award for the Best Project Team between $3 million and $25 million from the Washtenaw Contractors Association (WCA). J.S. Vig CEO Joseph Vig, LEED AP, made the announcement.
For more than a decade, the Pyramid Awards have recognized the outstanding performance of companies and individuals working within the Washtenaw County construction sector. Displaying a high degree of cooperation between project team members, honorees are selected by an independent panel composed of construction industry experts.
J.S. Vig was honored for their contractor role in the renovation and expansion of the Romulus Athletic Center. Located in Romulus, Mich., the new 89,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art recreation facility features a running track, fitness area, aquatic center with five indoor pools and a 30 foot slide, an outdoor pool, concession building, locker rooms, two cafes, banquet facilities, three gyms, rock climbing wall, youth center and child care area.
From the 11 project entries, the Pyramid Award judges recognized the project team of J.S. Vig, Wilkie & Zanley Architects (a Sidock Company) and The City of Romulus for their constant communication throughout the construction process, development of value engineering ideas and strategies for overcoming regulatory hurdles created by the facility’s close proximity to Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
This is the fourth time J.S. Vig has been honored by the WCA. The company previously won the Pyramid Award for Best Project Team in 2002, 2007 and 2008.
