(July 3, 2018) ATLANTA, GA –Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Georgia honored Winter Construction at its biannual Excellence in Construction competition and annual safety award program last month. Winter Construction received an Award of Safety Excellence for exceptional safety performance in 2017 and Awards of Merit for two projects: Alan Pope High School and the Solis Hotel at Two Porsche Drive. Winter and its joint venture partners, Johnson Construction and FS360, received an Award of Merit for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation & Aquatic Center, built for the City of Atlanta.
ABC’s Excellence in Construction program highlights the innovation, quality, and vision of a project’s entire construction team—general and specialty contractors, architects, engineers, owners, and others. Entries were evaluated on criteria such as complexity, attractiveness, safety, unusual challenges, completion time, workmanship, innovation, and budget.
The association’s safety awards are presented annually to Georgia contractors who have had low rates of on-the-job injuries and who have demonstrated the highest commitment to safety and safety training.
Winter’s construction of the Solis Hotel won the Award of Merit in the category of commercial projects valued between $25 and $50 million. The eight-story Solis Hotel has 214 guest rooms and provides visitors with easy access to Porsche’s North American headquarters and views of landings and take-offs at Atlanta’s international airport. Winter delivered the hotel as a design-build with HOK Architecture as architect of record.
Winter Construction also won an Award of Merit for Alan Pope High School in the category of institutional projects valued between $15 and $25 million. Winter completed a phased renovation and addition at the Cobb County school, including the addition of an 84,000 square-foot gymnasium and theater.
With joint venture partners Johnson Construction and FS360, Winter also received an Award of Merit for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation and Aquatic Center in the category of institutional projects valued between $15 and $25 million. The state-of-the-art Recreation and Aquatic Center is located adjacent to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Historic District, and its façade features a monumental portrait of Dr. King.
