Freeport, IL – April 18, 2016 – The design-build team of Winter Construction Inc. and Winter Design, Inc. of Freeport have been awarded a national Star Building Systems Master Builder prize for their project Generations Brewing Co., also in Freeport, IL. The building was awarded best overall project in the Small Manufacturing category. Mark Winter of Winter Construction accepted the award at the national sales meeting in Destin, FL, February 28-29th. The prestigious Master Builder Award recognizes the top projects in the country in design and construction excellence.
“The brewery’s asymmetrical gabled form recalls the massing of familiar agrarian structures; while also providing the clear span and height required for installing the 14’ tall fermenting tanks.” says Winter Design Principal Architect Scott Winter. “In order to marry this new industrial building with its rural and rustic setting, we mixed reclaimed barn wood and corrugated galvanized siding with more contemporary materials like steel and glass; creating a subtle harmony.”
