Brasfield & Gorrie Earns National Excellence in Construction Award From Associated Builders and Contractors

February 20, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) today announced that Brasfield & Gorrie’s work on the Rex Healthcare of Holly Springs project in Holly Springs, North Carolina, has earned the company an Eagle award in the Healthcare – Less than $10 Million category of ABC’s National Excellence in Construction Awards. Brasfield & Gorrie representatives received the award Feb. 20 during the 23rd annual Excellence in Construction Awards celebration at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

“ABC is proud to recognize Brasfield & Gorrie for its outstanding work on the Rex Healthcare of Holly Springs project,” said Michael D. Bellaman, ABC president and CEO. “This project embodies a commitment to innovation, safety and superior craftsmanship through creativity and skill.”

The Excellence in Construction Awards program is the industry’s leading competition, developed to honor innovative and high-quality merit shop construction projects. The award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. The winning projects, selected from entries submitted from across the nation, were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.

Despite a one-month schedule delay caused by a direct tornado hit, Brasfield & Gorrie completed this two-story, 34,238 sq ft health care facility on time thanks to careful planning.

“Brasfield & Gorrie is excited to have partnered with Duke Realty on this successful, national award-winning project. This medical office building will serve the healthcare needs of the Holly Springs community for many years to come, and we are excited to have been part of the project,” said Scott Duckworth, Regional Vice President at Brasfield & Gorrie.

A panel of industry experts served as the competition’s judges. This year’s panel included representatives from the Design-Build Institute of America, Engineering News-Record, the American Institute of Architects, and the National Association of Women in Construction, as well as representatives from higher education, among others.
