September 21, 2021 – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – PWCampbell, a leading design-build firm headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is pleased to announce that it is once again among the top winners of URC’s 2021 Annual Unsurpassed Award Winners Competition. URC, a global leader in smart automation and control for residential and commercial applications, seeks out top companies who excel at unique technology installations within diverse environments.

PWCampbell’s Technology Solutions Team debuted at URC’s Annual Surpassed Awards last year, clinching gold for their PeoplesBank Connection Center installation in Lancaster, PA. The design-build firm integrated several different state-of-the-art technologies into the design of the branch, including glass panels that change opacity within seconds, touchscreen integration throughout the branch, innovative conference room technology, digital signage, and more. The installation redefined the in-branch experience for PeoplesBank, giving consumers a peek at the future of banking.

In addition to last year’s gold, PWCampbell was awarded silver for Most Unique Installation, 2021 with their Alpha Labs installation, followed by dual bronze awards for Best Commercial Installation, 2021 with their installations at both Greylock Federal Credit Union and Arize Federal Credit Union. Alpha Labs currently serves as the “Innovation Hub” for PWCampbell’s expanding Technology Solutions team, used for developing, testing, and housing software and solutions for their clients. 

With four awards now under their belt, PWCampbell has quickly emerged as the leader of in-branch technology. They are currently the only design-build firm to hold multiple awards for their technology solutions and seamless integration from URC.

“We are very honored to have won Silver for most unique installation and two bronze awards for best commercial installation within the United States. That is quite an accomplishment given that PWCampbell is a design-build firm competing against many companies that specialize only in technology. I am very proud of our Technology Solutions team, and the creativity and knowledge they bring to our clients to create one-of-a-kind, technologically integrated environments.”

Jim Caliendo, President & CEO

The awards not only highlight PWCampbell’s robust product offerings for technology, but also highlight the team’s ability to work hand-in-hand with their in-house design team to seamlessly integrate these solutions into the branch design.

“Technology should never look like an afterthought,” stated Ben Mahtani, Vice President, Chief Information Officer for PWCampbell.  “That’s why we engage our design team early in the process, to create an experience that is intentional and enhances the overall consumer experience.”

“We invested in our technology because we knew that so many branches needed it. Especially with the ongoing generational shift at the consumer level, there’s an expectation from the modern-day consumer to provide relatable means of communication. It’s great to see that investment paying off,” concluded Caliendo.
