The Excellence in Construction award is presented on a bi-annual basis to contractors who excel in various types of construction projects.

“Nature Bridges is proud to accept this prestigious award from the Associated Builders and Contractors. Our employees work very hard on a daily basis. If not for their hard work, Nature Bridges would not be the nationally recognized company that it is today,” said JD James, President.
