Keller, Inc. Recognized for Excellence in Construction

WISCONSIN DELLS, WI – Keller, Inc. is being recognized for construction excellence in 2018.

Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) of Wisconsin honored Keller, Inc. with a GOLD Projects of Distinction Excellence in Construction Award for Care Animal Hospital in Pleasant Prairie, WI.

The specialty veterinary clinic is a “spa for animals.” It has the highest of finishes, water treadmills and an aquatic rehab facility, among other amenities, allowing Care Animal Hospital to care for virtually any animal. Coordination of the construction by Keller, Inc., was critical because of the specialty equipment installed. The biggest challenge, however, was the limited site size and many site restrictions from the community. The crew overcame brutal Wisconsin winter weather – as well as the project’s complexities and unique use of space – to complete the project on schedule.

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.

“This is an opportunity to recognize the professionalism of our contractor members who perform outstanding work for a wide variety of clients in areas like manufacturing, hospitality and education,” said John Mielke, ABC of Wisconsin president. “What makes the Projects of Distinction Awards program so special is that none of these award-winning projects are ordinary. Each one is unique and interesting.”

The Projects of Distinction Awards recognizes projects that are built on merit. The awards were presented at a Feb. 14 banquet in Wisconsin Dells.
