Keller, Inc. Recognized for Excellence in Construction

WISCONSIN DELLS, WI – Keller, Inc. is being recognized for construction excellence in 2019.

Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) of Wisconsin honored Keller, Inc. with a GOLD Projects of Distinction Excellence in Construction Award for Tri City Glass & Door located in Appleton, Wisconsin.

The Tri City Glass & Door project is a pre-engineered structure with decorative skins of split-face masonry, exterior insulation finish system, and architectural composite metal. It was completed by Keller in six phases to allow profitable operation during construction. The project included new construction, moving the client into a new space upon completion, renovating the existing space and moving the client back into the existing space when renovation was completed. Consulting with the client before finalizing any scheduling was critical. Workers braved cold conditions while pouring concrete and erecting steel and special safety procedures were implemented to protect them. Communication and coordination was critical to success.

The project was judged in a rigorous process by a panel of construction experts based on a number of criteria, including safety, quality, owner satisfaction, execution and coordination, budgeting, difficult and unusual challenges and overall distinctiveness.

The Projects of Distinction Awards is designed to recognize the most distinct construction projects in Wisconsin, and to elevate the awareness of the quality construction performed by ABC member firms and their employees.  Project owners and Keller, Inc. team members were on-hand to accept the prestigious awards on February 13th in Wisconsin Dells.

The event recognized 54 projects — mostly general construction — but also in specialty trades from electrical to plumbing to thermal and moisture protection.  A full list of the award winners can be found at
