Market and Johnson is the first Chippewa Valley business to win the General Contractor of the Year award in Wisconsin for 2004.
The Eau Claire-based firm was chosen over more than 75 others around Wisconsin.
Market and Johnson had been a finalist for the honor twice; in 2001 and 2003.
Their President and C.E.O. said the only way to win awards like this is to excel in everyday business.
"i think it proves to our customers that we run a really tidy project," Dan Market said.
"I think it also helps in the area of building up employee morale-once you win an award, you don't take it easy after that, you want to keep proving it."
The company has been in the construction management and general construction business since 1948.
They tackle some 50 building projects a year to the tune of about $80 million in annual revenue.
