Encore Projects and General Contractor Partners also Recognized at Awards Ceremony
October 25, 2017 – Denver, CO — Leading industry publication Engineering News-Record (ENR) hosted its Mountain States Regional Awards Celebration in Golden, CO to announce Project of the Year, General Contractor of the Year, Specialty Contractor of the Year and other awards. Encore Electric was named Specialty Contractor of the Year for the Mountain States Region of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado. Encore Electric was nominated and judged for the award by editors of ENR from around the country based on innovation, collaboration and project successes of the last year.
“The Specialty Contractor Award is not one that we award every year,” said Mark Shaw, Editor of ENR Mountain States who hosted the event. “We look at safety and innovation among other factors.”
President of Encore Electric Willis Wiedel accepted the award on behalf of the entire company. “When we started Encore Electric nearly 15 years ago, there were eight partners who wanted to keep working together and now we are reaching 750 employees,” said Willis. “Our team works every day to serve our customers, and we know firmly that we would not be here without our partnerships and our team.”
Other awards were given to Encore Electric Partners. GC Partner G.E. Johnson was selected as General Contractor of the year, Davis Partnership Architects received the Design Partner of the Year Award, and the University of Wyoming was named Owner of the year.
