Thank you Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) and University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), for entrusting your projects to our firm. As an extension of your team, together our partnership received the ABC Greater Baltimore Excellence in Construction – Excellence in Construction award for AACPS’s Edgewater Elementary School Revitalization project and Merit award for UMBC’s Retriever Activity Center Renewal project. The Edgewater Elementary School renovations provided enhancements to the overall teaching and learning environments by creating new classrooms while making the least physical impact on the existing building. The 95,200-square-foot Retriever Activity Center athletic facility was a phased occupied interior and exterior project, bringing the building back to life. The Excellence in Construction program is the premier competition within the region that recognizes outstanding projects ABC members have built. In addition to the Excellence in Construction and Merit awards, J. Vinton Schafer received the Safety Leadership Award. This is the first year ABC presented the Safety Leadership Award, which is presented only to one contractor for the year. This award is based on the company’s overall rating on safety leadership. Congratulations to AACPS and UMBC and to the JVS Team for your continued focus on safety.
