Eric Bower of BMY Construction Group, Inc. is being honored for his contributions to the restoration of The Fawcett House in Los Banos, California. The California Preservation Foundation awarded The Fawcett House with the 2019 Preservation Design Award for Restoration.
“Award recipients are selected by a jury of top professionals in the fields of architecture, engineering, planning, and history, as well as renowned architecture critics and journalists. In making their decision the jury noted the importance of encouraging preservation outside of major urban centers, stating, ‘there are so many places like this that we end up losing. In places like this, when the house is falling apart, it’s so often scrapped. We want to encourage this thought process in preservation where you don’t usually think of it.'”
Congratulations to Eric and a huge thank you to the California Preservation Foundation for recognizing the efforts made by each individual who made this incredible restoration possible!
