J. A. Street & Associates received several awards and recognitions at the Association of General Contractors annual awards event held March 28 at the Johnson City Country Club. The firm was awarded the General Contractor Circle of Excellence Award which was given to a firm that earned the respect of peers for skills, professionalism and integrity. In his acceptance speech, Jim Street, Founder and CEO, shared with the group that this award was a reflection of the firm’s ability to treat subcontractors fairly and persevere in a cyclical market. Project Manager, Don Osborne, received the prestigious Project Manager of the Year Award. The firm was also awarded the Division I Project of the Year Award for the Grundy National Bank project.

The bank was designed by Appalachian Technical Services, Inc. (John Ponish, lead architect). “I am honored to have the opportunity to be involved on quality projects like this one. There were many challenges but our design and construction team worked together to bring the client a quality project.” (Don Osborne, Project Manager for the Grundy National Bank project).
