MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Myers Building Systems, a general construction company in Clear Spring, recently was honored by Varco Pruden Buildings, one of the nation’s leading providers of steel building structures.

Myers Building Systems’ construction project, Blue Goose Bakery and Fruit Market at 557 E. Main St. in Hancock, was selected for Varco Pruden’s 2013 Hall of Fame.

The annual Hall of Fame accepts entries from authorized Varco Pruden builders throughout North America. Projects selected for the honor are chosen based on criteria including unique design, quality of construction and effective use of materials. A panel of independent architects across the country is given the task of choosing from hundreds of entries.

The Blue Goose Bakery and Fruit Market project was chosen as one of six national finalists in the agricultural category and received the top award. Announcement of the selection was made during Varco Pruden’s national sales meeting, held recently in Las Vegas.

“The selection and induction process for VP Buildings Hall of Fame nominations is highly competitive and VP Buildings is very proud of the Blue Goose Bakery and Fruit Market building,” Brendan Knarr, Maryland-based district manager for Varco Pruden, said in a news release. “The functionality and curbside appeal Blue Goose demonstrates is exceptional. VP Buildings is honored to have the Blue Goose Bakery and Fruit Market building placed in the 2013 VP Buildings Hall of Fame.”

In the news release, Myers Building Systems said “all the credit needs to go to the owners, Randy and Penny Pittman of Hancock, for their courage to move forward on this project during the economy that prevailed in 2010.”

He said their willingness to invest in such a creative project was the key reason Myers Building Systems received the award.
