March 14, 2014 – Work at Towson University’s Richmond & Newell Halls Wins National Award. Roofing work on Towson University’s Richmond & Newell Halls by Ruff Roofers of Baltimore received national recognition from the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA).

The NRCA presented its 19th annual Gold Circle Awards during its 127th Annual Convention Feb. 24-28th in Las Vegas. Gold Circle Awards were given to NRCA members who made significant contributions to the roofing industry in several categories. The Richmond and Newell Hall project was one of only seven projects in the nation to receive recognition in the category of “Outstanding Workmanship—Steep Slope.”

Lewis Contractors served as construction manager for this project which involved a comprehensive interior and exterior renovation and restoration of the two iconic dormitory buildings on the Towson University campus.  The structures, nearly 100 years old, total 90,000 square feet and were last renovated in 1972.  In addition to this national award, the project is the recipient of four Building Congress & Exchange Awards for Craftsmanship (Terracotta, Cast Stone, Masonry, and Roofing), and a 2013 Associated Builders and Contractors Excellence in Construction Award.

“Every successful general contractor and construction manager knows that you are only as good as the people on your team and the subcontractors you work with,” said Tyler Tate, President of Lewis Contractors. “We are proud to have forged strong, repeat relationships with quality, Maryland subcontractors.”
