The Bank of Luxemburg building project is being recognized as one of the most impressive and unique construction projects completed by a Wisconsin contractor in 2022. Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) of Wisconsin will be honoring Keller, Inc. with a GOLD Projects of Distinction Excellence in Construction Award for the ground-up bank located in Howard, Wisconsin.
The Bank of Luxemburg (BOL) allowed Keller, Inc. (Keller) to interview for a new branch bank in Howard, WI. The BOL interviewed three architects/builders, the bank used their entire Board of Directors to do the interview and selection.
Keller used their presentation skills during the interview by using a combination of electronic and verbal techniques. The Keller Design Team consists of a Project Manager, Architect and Interior Designer.
Keller’s process starts with discovering what the client wants in their new building; the “Discovery” is the most innovative thing Keller does. For the BOL Keller spent an entire day with the management staff to determine every detail of the functional, and aesthetics desires of BOL.
Because Keller uses the Design/Build delivery system, BOL recognized the value of Design/Build coordination and taking care of everything for the customer. There isn’t anything Keller will not do for our clients. BOL selected Keller because of value they saw in the Keller process.
Keller used some very cutting-edge materials on the exterior combining many different products. Using great subcontractors, many of them ABC members, helped Keller meet the obstacles like weather and supply chain issues.
Keller implemented both design and build technologies like Revit and Procore to enhance our productivity. Tremble and 3D virtual tools helped Keller provide enhanced delivery of services.
The final product was a building that has met all the expectations of BOL.
The Projects of Distinction Awards recognizes construction projects that are built on merit and are judged by a panel of construction experts based on several criteria, including quality, owner satisfaction, unusual challenges, and safety. The awards will be presented at a January banquet at the Glacier Canyon Lodge in Wisconsin Dells.
Projects are recognized in a number of different types and sizes of general construction and specialty trades. Projects are all completed between October 2021 and September 2022.
“Projects of Distinction demonstrate the excellence in construction services by ABC of Wisconsin members,” said John Mielke, president of ABC of Wisconsin. “These unique projects are evaluated by a panel of experts in the field, including architects, engineers and educators in the construction industry and allow Wisconsin’s merit contractors to demonstrate their professionalism, craftsmanship and safety.”
