The team of Zartman Construction and Larson Design Group (LDG) recently received an Excellence in Construction Merit Award for their work with the Barnes & Noble at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA.
The project was awarded “Best Restoration/Renovation Project” by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Central Pennsylvania Chapter.
This year’s awards program showcased 10 entries, all judged upon specific criteria relating to the quality of construction and workmanship by a panel of design professionals and members of the construction industry. Projects were judged on execution of design, craftsmanship, safety, attention to detail, proper installation, evidence of extraordinary effort, owner satisfaction, and other considerations.
LDG was originally retained by an electrical contractor to provide professional review and sealing of electrical drawings for the rehabilitation of an existing building into the new bookstore. Final lighting fixture layout, based on LDG’s photometric analysis, will provide efficient and comfortable lighting levels compliant with the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America recommendations.
The winning project required extensive coordination with several parties, including Bucknell University; Barnes & Noble; Zartman Construction, the electrical and mechanical contractors; and the lighting vendor to finalize the lighting and design revisions.
