On June 9th, The S/L/A/M Collaborative(SLAM), was recognized for its participation as a design firm on five of the eight CBC Project Team award-winning projects at the 19th annual awards banquet in Hartford. The Connecticut Building Congress looks for outstanding building projects that exemplify project team excellence and represent the best practices in teamwork by project owners, architects, engineers, constructors, and trades. Each year, CBC recognizes projects whose team members have met or sur passed goals and achieved higher project quality through this close collaboration. The Connecticut Building Congress honored project teams that showed extraordinary collaboration in the execution of their projects.
SLAM received first place awards in the “Small Projects” category for the “Kent School Music and Mattison Auditorium”, a design-build project with S/L/A/M Construction Services, and in the “New Construction” category for the “Bedford Family Center” with Turner Construction. The Bedford Family Center, a new YMCA facility located in Westport, CT was also recognized as the CBC “Project of the Year”.
“It was an honor to have worked on each of these high-caliber teams”, Robert F. Pulito, AIA, SLAM President said. “Several of these projects have been honored by other groups as well, illustrating how much teamwork matters in project delivery.”
SLAM was also recognized for winning “Awards of Merit” for Danbury Hospital’s Peter and Lucia Buck Pavilion with Gilbane Building Company, “Middlesex Hospital Shoreline Medical Center” with the Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, and for “Harvard H. Ellis High School” with KBE Building Company.
