SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — The Barbara Deer Kuss Science Center has won an Award of Excellence in the Institutional Construction category from the 15th annual Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) Ohio Valley Chapter 2003 Construction Awards competition.
The premiere competition within the construction industry, the ABC Awards recognize outstanding construction projects built by ABC members. Thomas & Marker Construction Co., which also built Hollenbeck Hall, will receive the award during a banquet, Nov. 20, at the Marriott in West Chester, Ohio.
“We feel fortunate that we were able to be a part of this exciting new project for Wittenberg University, and we are honored by the receipt of this award,” said Bill Dillon, Thomas & Marker project manager.
“This has truly been a team effort, including key university personnel, Holabird & Root LLP (architects), our many skillful subcontractors and our dedicated associates,” he added. “All members of the project team deserve a share of this award.”
Named in memory of the late wife of Richard L. “Dick” Kuss, a member of the class of 1945, the Barbara Deer Kuss Science Center was formally dedicated, Sept. 19, during a convocation and ceremony on campus.
The $22-million center, which provides an additional 45,000 square feet of laboratories, classrooms, office and study space, houses numerous science programs and departments, including biochemistry, computer science, chemistry, environmental studies, geology, health professions, marine biology, molecular biology, mathematics and physics.
