Kaufman Lynn Construction, one of the largest building companies in the southeastern United States, was honored in three categories during the ABC Excellence in Construction Awards. Kaufman Lynn Construction received top honors with three Eagle awards and one Pyramid award from the Florida East Coast Chapter of Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC), Florida’s leading commercial construction trade association.
“We are extremely proud to have our teams’ work recognized in such an undeniable way, “says Michael Kaufman, Founder and CEO of Kaufman Lynn Construction. “To win even one award from our peers is a great honor, but to take every category we entered is a testament to the exceptional work and skill of our KL crew and our quality subcontractors.”
The ABC Excellence in Construction Awards recognizes achievement in several areas, including job site and project conditions, difficulty of installation, complexity, project coordination, exterior, mechanical, electrical, interior finishes, safety and quality of the finished product.
