MENDOTA, IL — Younglove Construction, L.L.C., of Sioux City, Iowa, received a construction award from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Iowa during the association’s annual Excellence in Construction Gala, which was held at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, Iowa.

Younglove Construction was recognized with a 2021 Award of Excellence in the category of Commercial: Industrial & Public Works/Environmental (Over $10 Million). The award was presented based on the company’s work on the flour mill and grain storage facility for ADM Milling in Mendota, Illinois. Criteria for the award included complexity of the project, attractiveness, unusual challenges, innovation, safety, and budget compliance.

“This project is an example of the innovation and commitment to outstanding craftsmanship that embody merit shop construction. The superior workmanship illustrates the high level of quality produced by merit shop contractors,” said Greg Spenner, ABC of Iowa President and CEO.

Associated Builders and Contractors of Iowa is a nonprofit construction trade association that boasts the largest construction apprenticeship training program in the state. With more than 540 member firms statewide, ABC fosters the principles of freedom of choice through the merit construction philosophy. ABC members build commercial buildings, industrial plants, municipal and public works projects, roads and highways, and homes and provide an array of construction services.
