A.C.E. Building Service, Inc. has been awarded a 2006 Projects of Distinction Award from the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) of Wisconsin. Their project, Time Out Sports Bar & Grill in Manitowoc, won the award in the “Metal Building Under $1 Million” category.

A.C.E. partnered with owner Tom Peterson and designer SMI of Manitowoc to create the 8,556-square-foot Butler metal building in 2004. With a “big city” feel to it, the bar and grill has a modern, attractive aesthetic appeal that also offers low maintenance. It features a full bar, large dining area, full kitchen, game room, meeting rooms and basement. Also included are high-end finishes for the building’s inside, such as a handpainted wall mural, stained concrete, an old-fashioned wooden phone booth, stainless steel bar, and Louisville Slugger door pulls.

“A.C.E. really hit the nail on the head with this project. We all worked together to achieve an excellent finished project, and the quality of the workmanship speaks for itself,” commented Peterson. “Time Out is appealing to all ages – seniors, families and the young crowd. Plus the community really appreciates having it here.”

Added Ron Schwalbe of A.C.E. Building Service: “This building project raises the bar in terms of aesthetics, functionality and value. The owner’s satisfaction and public response reinforce our comment to quality and customer service.”

The Projects of Distinction Awards program recognizes the most distinct construction projects throughout Wisconsin. All entries were evaluated by an independent panel of judges. Winning projects were selected based on eight criteria: craftsmanship; execution/coordination; budget; scheduling; difficult and unusual challenges; owner/architect satisfaction; safety; and overall distinctiveness.

The contractor, owner, and designer of each winning project were presented with a crystal award at a recent Projects of Distinction Awards banquet. Winning projects are eligible to enter the ABC National Excellence in Construction Awards Program. A.C.E. Building Service was incorporated in 1963 and is located in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. They provide commercial and industrial construction services to “Wisconsin’s Lakeshore” counties, including new buildings, expansions, renovations, metal re-roof, facilities maintenance, concrete machine foundations, design/build, and build/lease.
