Reno was a big winner at the Associated Builders & Contractors Excellence in Construction Awards on November 21st at the new San Diego Central Library. The annual event honors merit shop contractors and acknowledges excellence in general contracting.
Reno was honored with not one, but TWO Excellence in Construction Awards for the Palm Springs Unified School District solar PV project and the 4-story mixed-use Truax Building in downtown Temecula.
The 5.9 megawatt solar PV project for the Palm Springs Unified School District was the FIRST solar canopy project to be constructed on the ground and crane lifted into place. This allowed crews to safely and quickly install solar panels by minimizing the amount of work performed from scissor and/or boom lifts. This innovative construction resulted in large savings of both time and manpower.
The 65,000 SF Truax Building embodies new urbanism with street-level retail and limited parking. The building’s façade and interior are a modern rendition of the classic 1920’s art deco period with arched doorways, fluted columns and trim, tin ceiling squares, custom wainscoted and trimmed wall panels.
Reno’s standards of integrity, a safe work environment and forward-thinking were made evident throughout both projects and contributed to the success of another award winning year for Reno Contracting.
