CLEVELAND, March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Penton's ContractingBusiness.com has presented The Bowers Group, Belstville, Md., with its 2016 Commercial HVAC Contractor of the Year Award.
The Bowers Group was founded by Wayne E. Bowers in 1987, as the W.E. Bowers Co. From basic air conditioning, heating and plumbing, The Bowers Group's expertise has expanded over 30 years into building operations, energy saving solutions, commissioning and retro-commissioning, data centers, chiller replacement and repair, and boiler service and replacement.
For nearly two decades prior to starting the company, Wayne Bowers had worked as a steamfitter for three firms. It was during that time that he observed what each company did right, and which methods needed improvement. When he decided to start his own contracting firm, he shaped it in a way that would serve employees, suppliers and customers with respect, fairness and the highest quality installation and service.
Among The Bowers Group's winning processes is its pre-fabrication method, which all leading commercial contracting firms across the U.S. have adopted. With this method, the contractor assembles much of a buildings' plumbing and ventilation components at their shop, and transport them to the jobsite. This results in a more efficient, less complicated and safer system installation.
"When I visited The Bowers Group, it was evident that it had successfully maintained the highest standards of quality, safety, training, and customer service," said Terry McIver, content director, ContractingBusiness.com. "The Bowers Group represents everything a leading-edge commercial mechanical contractor should be."
In addition to Bowers, the Group's management team includes: Kenneth "Kenny" Colburn, special projects manager; Richard Harrington, CFO; David J. O'Donnell, executive vice president, mechanical construction; Jay H. Schwab, vice president, construction; and Thomas D. Palmer, project design manager.
