The Excellence in Construction Gala honors the skills and creativity of the entire team responsible for an outstanding merit shop construction project.

In the category of Commercial Construction under $5 to $10 million, Ferguson was awarded a top honor for their design and construction of the Goodwill Easter Seals of the Miami Valley West Campus Community Services Center. The facility will better meet the needs of the citizens in West Dayton, and Trotwood by creating a neighborhood setting offering a variety of life-changing services. The programs include community outreach, behavioral health services, including youth programs, services for adults with developmental disabilities, and adult day senior services. The project construction was focused on universal design that went above and beyond ADA requirements. Special attention was given to the personal needs of the clientele and staff, creating a space that values dignity and inclusion.

The Merit in Construction Award, in the category of Commercial under $4 million, was bestowed to Ferguson for the revitalization of the Mercy Mission House campus. The campus, which once was a church, is now home to 6 different nonprofit organizations including Alpha Community Center, Bridges Community Action Partnership, Holy Angels Soup Kitchen, and Mercy Mission House shelter. Each agency operates independently and continues to provide services to clients in one location, which streamlines efforts for residents in the community and makes agency collaboration to execute. The project construction required renovating the church to include male, female, and family dormitories. Additionally, a commercial kitchen, multi-purpose room, food pantry, and quarantine dormitory were added to the community center. Finally, a new vehicle and storage garage was added to house the organization’s transportation vehicles.
