It’s February, which means it’s award season for Friede & Associates. Every year, we enter our most distinctive projects in the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Wisconsin Projects of Distinction Awards. This year, we submitted seven projects for consideration. The award submissions are tedious to prepare and require a long list of documentation just to be eligible.

Ultimately, the most interesting and distinctive projects in Wisconsin were evaluated by 17 judges who put their architectural, engineering, and construction knowledge to work with a tough set of criteria. They award projects based on safety, craftsmanship, execution and coordination; budgeting; scheduling; difficult and unusual challenges; owner satisfaction; and overall distinctiveness.

The project had involved working through one of the coldest winters on record, and involved constructing a building in an area that had previously been an outdoor pool area and deck that was surrounded by two wings of the existing resort.

In addition, Friede & Associates was tasked with recreating a corridor to connect the wings of the hotel through the new structure, as we had removed an elevated walkway while creating a larger building envelope. Because the new swim-up bar was situated within the center courtyard of the hotel, the only access for equipment and material would be through the area where we were constructing the new go-kart attraction. In many ways, that part of the project was like building a ship in a bottle.
