Two Category Awards: Building Retrofit and Warehousing
 
March 18, 2021 – Branford, CT; – Pat Munger Construction Company, Inc has been named to Varco Pruden’s 2021 Hall of Fame for its American Polyfilm project, rated Best in the Warehousing Category, and for The Lee Company Building 2 project, rated Winner in the Retrofit Category.
 
The highly competitive Hall of Fame Awards are presented annually to the independent authorized VP Builders whose work reflects innovation and excellence using Varco Pruden building systems by creating exceptional architectural appearance, efficient design, and effective end use. “The Hall of Fame is proof positive that our builders continue to challenge the boundaries by seeking new and innovative ways to prove that Metal Building Systems are the system of choice,” said Paul Day, Varco Pruden president.
 
A VP pre-engineered steel building designed by Terry Architecture provides American Polyfilm, a Branford, CT manufacturer, with a new 27,400 SF facility, most of which is dedicated to warehousing but also provides office space, a two-story lean-to mezzanine and a separate structure to house the entire site’s utilities.  Munger completed construction in December 2020.  The building features panel rib walls, continuous beam framing, single slope galvalume roof and below eave canopies above the overhead doors. 
 
The Lee Company, a Westbrook, CT manufacturer hired Munger to renew Building 2 into a 26,000 SF meeting and training center.  The retrofit, designed by architect Tom Gribbon, was completed in August 2020.  The original manufacturing facility was leveled to its main frames and its secondary framing roof purlins and wall girts were replaced.  The renovated facility features ThermalClad™ wall panels that offer superior thermal performance with an attractive profile along with a single slope galvalume roof.  Large moveable partitions enable space flexibility for training, meetings, catering and dining. A high-performance audio/visual system enhances the environment.
 
“We are very proud to be recognized by Varco Pruden Buildings as a 2021 Hall of Fame award winner,” said David DeMaio, Munger president. "These projects highlight the advanced architectural vision, engineering expertise and technical construction capability of the Munger team."
