The EIC award annually recognizes and celebrates outstanding projects by Georgia ABC members and was presented June 23 at the 2022 EIC and Safety Awards Gala at the Fox Theater in Atlanta. The program is the industry’s leading competition honoring innovative and high-quality construction projects that are judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety, and cost.

“Evans was responsive and agile to the many coordination requirements for this project with coordination of equipment suppliers and vendors from across the globe,” stated Jose Arozamena, Founder and CEO of Arglass Southeast, LLC. “Advanced planning with Arglass contractors and vendors were required and resulted in a successful, on-time, start-up of the furnace in 2020”.

Arglass is now eligible to compete in the 33rd Annual National Excellence in Construction Awards© where it will be up against projects from across the county.

“We are honored to accept this award and to compete nationally but are prouder of the project team who executed with precision.
