Berglund Construction will be receiving the a 2018 Modernism in America Award next week in New York City at Design Within Reach in Midtown from 6-9pm. The projects recognized for the Modernism in America Awards highlight the diversity of significant modern buildings and sites – not just the iconic but also those that are regionally significant - and the increasing importance of regional forces and sensitive development. The projects highlight the highest level of restoration expertise and demonstrate creative and sensitive 21stcentury solutions. As modern architecture continues to face developmental pressures, demolition or insensitive restoration, it is paramount to recognize that these projects, like earlier architectural designs, can and must be preserved in meaningful and productive ways that enhance their presence and value in their respective communities.
The Modernism in America Awards is the only national program that celebrates the people and projects working to preserve, restore and rehabilitate our modern heritage sensitively and productively. Now in its fifth year, the program seeks to advance those preservation efforts; to increase appreciation for the period and to raise awareness of the ongoing threats to modern architecture and design.
Berglund is receiving the Special Award of Restoration Excellence for our work as general contractor for The Unity Temple Restoration project completed in 2017. Fred Berglund, President and Jack Tribbia, President of Restoration will both be in attendance in New York City accepting the award. Berglund is honored to receive such a prestigious award and thank the entire team who made this project a truly remarkable journey.
