Brenneco Fire Protection announced that it has won an Award of Excellence from Associated Builders and Contractors Inc. (ABC), a respected professional construction trade association. This is the second time that the company has received this coveted award.

Brenneco won for its 2011 Phi Delta Theta fraternity house project at Depauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. The 18,440-square-foot historical home was built in the late 1920’s. The sprinkler system installation was part of a major renovation project to keep the house safe and comfortable for its residents.

“The biggest impact of this project for Phi Delta Theta is safeguarding its students and the institution from the threat of a fire,” Eric Flora, owner of Brenneco Fire Protection, says. He adds; "We were able to fulfill those needs in a timely manner so that the historical Phi Delta Theta house and its incoming students would be safe.”
