(Bannockburn, Illinois –)  James A. Brucato and Mark E. Augustyn, owners of Principle Construction Corp., are proud to announce that the firm recently received the 2013 Merit Award for Industrial Construction at the recent Chicago Building Congress (CBC) 57th Annual award ceremony held at the University Club of Chicago. Principle Construction Corp. was part of the winning Winpak Portion Packaging project team that also included Dermody Partners, Harris Architects and Jacob & Hefner.

Established in 1938, the CBC membership represents some of the most respected contractors and design professionals in the Chicago metropolitan area.  Started in 1956, their award tradition recognizes the best projects constructed in the area every year.  Judging is based upon the distinctiveness of design, quality of construction, impact upon the community and the project’s safety record. Winpak’s Sauk Village facility is now among an elite group of CBC Merit Award winners, such as the Shed Aquarium, Sears Tower, Soldier Field, Trump Tower and McCormick Place, just to name a few.

“This is the second time one of our projects has been selected as a Merit Award winner and we are extremely honored to have Winpak recognized by the CBC, this year.  Our customers may not realize it when they hire us, but we are always focused on designing and constructing their project in such a way that is capable of becoming a Merit Award Candidate.  It’s just one more reason for them to choose Principle Construction Corp.” stated Mark Augustyn, Chief Operating Officer for Principle Construction
