2017 Evening of Excellence

We are thrilled to announce that our project at Allegheny Country Club won the 2016 MBA Best in Craftsmanship Award!

We want to thank Justin Kolanz, John Means, and Bill Paul from Allegheny Country Club, as well as Dave Urbansky and Jim Wallis from Perspectus Architecture for your patience and design ideas throughout construction. Of course, the project could never have been successful without Superintendent Emory Lukacs and Project Manager Andrew Marsic, both of whom displayed extraordinary dedication and perseverance throughout the renovations. It felt like every day presented a new challenge for the team, but it was handled efficiently and professionally. A special thank you to Wayne Crouse, Renick Brothers, and Sargent Electric for going above and beyond, always willing to lend a hand and offer their own ideas to make the construction process more efficient. Our team really made this a personal effort, which truly made it a success.

2016 MBA Awards

We would like to announce that our renovation project at Allegheny Country Club is a finalist for the MBA Best in Craftsmanship Award! The basement level in the main clubhouse was demolished and transformed into a new fitness area, Pro Shop, golf bag storage/repair area, and wine cellar/tasting room. A new staircase that matches the existing stairs was installed from the first floor receptionist area to the the basement level. Extensive mechanical, electrical, and plumbing upgrades, replacements, and relocations were also included.  The project was designed to modernize the club while maintaining the original 1902 design, and extra attention focused on the finishes matching the existing club as closely as possible. In doing so, the transformation of the space is truly remarkable and flows with the original designs beautifully.

The awards will be presented at the MBA Evening of Excellence on Thursday, February 23, 2017 at Heinz Field. This is one of the most anticipated nights in the industry, a great way to celebrate  the hard work we all do throughout the year.

We have exciting news! Landau Building Company is shortlisted for two MBA Building Excellence Awards! Our Jefferson Regional Medical Center project is the finalist for Renovations Over $10 Million, and the Mario Lemieux Center for Blood Cancers is a finalist for Renovations Under $10 Million.  Jefferson’s $15 million project transformed existing office spaces into a beautiful new cancer treatment center and women health centers.  Our project team worked tirelessly to complete this project as scheduled, putting great detail into the finishing touches.  While working on the Lemieux Center, we collaborated with the Mario Lemieux Foundation to produce a stunning area where patients can feel relaxed and at home during a time of uncertainty. And thanks to additional donations from the Lemieux Foundation, a striking rooftop terrace, complete with putting green, was added as a focal point for the treatment center.
