It is an honor for the association to recognize these projects with our top construction excellence awards.”
ABC Arkansas designed the Excellence in Construction program to recognize excellent performance in the merit shop construction field. The award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. This year's competition was open to all construction projects completed by ABC member firms during 2015. The winning projects were selected from entries submitted from across the state and were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.
The owners of these projects are Hunt Ventures and CARTI. The architectural/engineering firms used were CORE Architects and Polk Stanley Wilcox.
A panel from the Construction Management Department of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock served as the competition’s judges.
