Commercial Renovation/Restoration Award for Christ Episcopal Church
After a year off due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance hosted more than 150 people Wednesday evening, October 13th for the third annual Building Berks Awards & Trade Expo at the DoubleTree by Hilton Reading.
Event attendees were able to watch videos of winning projects while enjoying appetizers and a signature cocktail made with ingredients from one of the evening’s winners, Reading Distilling Guild.
D&S Elite Construction, Inc. won for our work with Christ Episcopal Church and was awarded in the Commercial Renovation/Restoration category, in collaboration with Muhlenberg Greene Architects.
This year 25 amazing projects were nominated across 10 categories. The 25 nominated projects represented over $123 million in total investment, nearly 2,000 construction jobs, over 700 jobs created and/or retained and over 2.2 million total square-footage developed, renovated, or newly constructed. The full story can be found in our organization’s (GRCC) quarterly magazine, Commerce Quarterly.
The event and awards were developed in 2018 as an opportunity to spotlight and celebrate innovation and positive economic growth and development through construction projects in Greater Reading, Pennsylvania. Applicants submitting nominations for projects were asked to include all parties involved — from the banking institution to the contractor to the municipality — to honor everyone involved in making projects in our community come to fruition!
The nominees of the 2021 Building Berks Awards are part of a larger story we have been telling about Greater Reading for some time — our region is growing and is primed for even more development. The 2021 nominated projects are more than just the walls and square footage, they represent opportunity, growth, jobs and possibilities for our region. All nominated projects must have been completed between July 2019 and July 2021.
We want to thank everyone that voted for us! We are looking forward to celebrating again in 2023.
