Associated Builders and Contractors announced that All Star Electric's work on the 19th Judicial Courthouse in Baton Rouge, Louisiana has earned the company a Pyramid Award in the Category of Electrical Construction over $10 Million of ABC's Excellence in Construction Awards.

Todd Trosclair, All Star Electric's CEO, received the award during the 21st annual Excellence in Construction Awards celebration at the Waldorf Astoria in Orlando, Fla.


"This project is an outstanding example of the innovation and commitment to superior craftsmanship that embody merit shop construction," said Michael D. Bellaman, ABC president and CEO.


The Excellence in Construction awards program is the industry's leading competition, developed to honor innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects and safety programs.


The award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer.


The winning projects, selected from entries submitted from across the nation, were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.


A panel of industry experts served as the competition's judges. This year's panel included representatives from the Design-Build Institute of America, Engineering News-Record, the American Institute of Architects, and the National Association of Women in Construction, and representatives from higher education, among others.
