Albion Takes Home Two 1st Place AGC Build Georgia 2021 Awards!
Albion is honored and excited to announce that we’ve been awarded two 1st place honors from the 2021 AGC Build Georgia Awards! We won for our work on the University of North Georgia Observatory Replacement and the Atlanta Humane Society’s Brownfield Remediation. The winning projects represent the best the construction industry has to offer. The qualifications include exceptional project safety performance, overcoming the challenges of a difficult project, innovation in construction techniques and materials, excellence in project management and scheduling, dedication to client service and customer care.
Albion is very proud of the modern, new observatory we completed for the Board of Regents on the University of North Georgia’s campus in Dahlonega, Georgia. The project team included Project Executive, D.J. Schell; Project Manager, Jason Strane; and Superintendent, Chris Beaver and the architects, Warren Epstein & Associates, Architect, Inc. Albion was met with many challenges regarding telescope installation, team coordination and time constraints. Despite these challenges, Albion was able to stay on time, on budget and on target to bring the Board of Regents and the University of North Georgia’s Observatory dreams to life. In result, Albion delivered a stunning and functional space for the future astronomical research to come on the University of North Georgia’s campus. Congratulations to all involved!
Albion was also very excited to receive first place for the Brownfield Remediation work we completed on the land that we’re building the new Atlanta Humane Society headquarters on! This remediation required ample amounts of careful planning, precise coordination, and critical thinking to remove all the contaminated material. The main goal of this remediation was to render the site suitable for human use and construction. As a result of all the detailed preparation and execution, Albion delivered a usable piece of land for the Atlanta Humane Society to build their new headquarters on- all while staying ahead of schedule and under budget. Albion worked closely with Breedlove Land Planning, Croft & Associates and The Atlanta Humane Society. Congratulations to the team who made this project a success- D. J. Schell, Project Executive; Dan Hofert, Project Manager; and Kevin Lynch, Superintendent.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of each of these projects and thank you to the AGC for your continued support!
