“This was an outstanding project in every sense and we are incredibly proud to be recognized for the teamwork, safety commitment and operational excellence demonstrated by the entire team,” said Clarence Stadlwieser, MEGlobal project director.
The project, along with other eligible entries, was reviewed by an independent panel and judged based upon the following criteria: overcoming challenges and teamwork, safety, innovation and contribution to the industry/community, construction quality and craftsmanship, and functionality of design and aesthetic quality. It was one of just 18 selected from more than 130 submissions.
