American Contractors Honored in the 2011 CISCA Construction Excellence Awards

American Contractors, a New England-based acoustical ceiling and wall subcontractor, was awarded gold in the category of interior finishes and silver in the category of renovations at the 2012 CISCA Convention for the company’s work at JetBlue’s terminal C at Logan International Airport.  The project was recognized for its broad scope of work in acoustical ceilings, acoustical wall panels and custom architectural metal work as well as its completion on a tight deadline under demanding job conditions.

Under the direction of Rizvi Architects and construction manager Skanska, American Contractors fabricated and installed all the custom metalwork within the terminal as well as installed the custom curved perforated metal ceiling and assembled the custom colored, designer specified resin wall system.  Specifically, American Contractors engineered the following:

  • 26 ft. linen, mirror and meshed finished, elliptical stainless steel column enclosures
  • 200 linear feet custom stainless steel bench with walnut seats, aligning with a glass curtain wall and ceiling
  • Custom metal ceilings
  • Custom wall panels
  • Solid surface bathroom vanities
  • Custom stainless steel wall panels
  • Custom stainless steel podium with walnut plastic laminate
  • Custom millwork
  • Custom plastic laminate casework

The subcontractor was able to complete this project in a tight schedule of eight months, and meet the owner’s deadline to reveal the terminal in a dedication ceremony.  By bundling these trades together, American Contractors was able to take charge on the project, as they did not have to rely on other subcontractors, and provide better service.  This terminal stands out like no other space in the airport – or airports nationwide.
