Friday Harbor Center won the honor of Best Overall Building and Building of the Year in a contest for "Design and Construction Excellence" sponsored by Garco Buildings Inc. A panel of top Architects and Designers picked winners from 8 categories and then picked one of those category winners for Building of the Year. "It was the hands down winner" according to Joanie Garvin of Garco Inc.

Entries were judged according to a variety of criterion from eye appeal to construction materials and flexibility of design for steel buildings. Com-Steel LLC. was the general contractor.

Owners Gordy and Lori Petersen were surprised when they were contacted by Gerald Schober of Com-Steel with the news. "Your building was selected to be the over all best building of all buildings Garco has fabricated, in all states they serve, constructed in the two year award period. We are very proud of this prestigious award and of our involvement in your project." said Schober.

The Architects for the building were BC&J's Peter Brockvogel and Anna Justiss of D&A Studio (formerly of BC&J).
