PPL Park wins honor

Chester, Pa. (September 28, 2010)- PPL Park, the riverside home of Philadelphia Union, has been named the "Sports/Recreation Project of the Year" by Mid-Atlantic Construction earlier this week when the magazine released the winners of the Best of 2010 awards program.

The annual competition recognizes construction and design excellence in the Mid-Atlantic region, which includes Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

In order to eligible for a "Best of 2010" award, the project had to be completed between September 1, 2009 and September 1, 2010, as well as being located within the Mid-Atlantic region.  PPL Park competed against approximately 100 other candidates that were spread over 20 different categories ranging from government buildings, to research buildings and even places of worship. Award winners were chosen by an independent jury, composed of experts of the construction industry, who met in September to finalize the results.
