Three projects receive national awards from ABC
On March 3, three Rodgers projects received national awards from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) for Excellence in Construction. With over 100 projects recognized, Rodgers was one of five firms receiving three or more awards.
A complex demolition and renovation project at Self Regional Healthcare in Greenwood, SC, took home the top award in its category, receiving the Eagle award for healthcare projects in the $10-25 million range. Notable challenges in included demolishing the top four floors of the Old Main Patient Tower, built in the 1960s. A central portion of the structure was removed down to the foundation, creating two separate structures. A new steel-framed structure was built inside the complex separated by expansion joints, using the existing foundations for support and surrounded by the adjacent existing buildings. This two-story addition serves as a new open atrium and main entrance corridor.
A new Advanced Manufacturing Technology Training Center at Central Carolina Technical College, Sumter, SC, received the Pyramid award for renovation projects in the $10-100 million range, while Lost Hollow: The Kimbrell Children’s Garden at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden won a Pyramid award for other types of construction projects in the $2-100 million category.
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. Eagle awards were presented to the highest scoring projects in each category with pyramid awards presented to the next highest scoring projects. A panel of industry experts served as the competition’s judges.
