Excellence in Construction
The ABC Excellence in Construction Awards honor the most innovative and high quality construction projects in the nation. Four Hoar Construction projects won the Excellence in Construction Eagle award, the highest honor awarded by ABC. Two other projects won the Excellence in Construction Pyramid award.
The award-winning Hoar Construction projects are:
Bridge Street Town Centre – Huntsville: A 13.5 acre expansion to Huntsville’s top retail center which includes a two story Belk department store, a 903 car parking deck, and 50,000 square feet of specialty shops in four new buildings. Hoar Construction drained and partially refilled an existing lake, then built the expansion on the former lake bed.
PreSchool Partners – Birmingham: After 20 years of renting and sharing spaces– PreSchool Partners finally moved into a brand new school of their own. The nonprofit organization prepares at-risk three and four year olds for kindergarten in the Birmingham school system. The new building completed by Hoar Construction allowed PreSchool Partners to expand operations by 60 percent, helping them reach even more children and families in the community.
Cathedral of Saint Paul – Birmingham: Originally built in 1889, the Cathedral of Saint Paul was in dire need of a new roof and other renovations. While the congregation continued to attend mass twice a day and hold weddings and funerals, Hoar Construction meticulously worked to replace the cathedral’s roof and update its electrical system.
Lane Park Apartments – Mountain Brook: This 276 unit luxury residential community sits near Mountain Brook Village, Birmingham Botanical Gardens and the Birmingham Zoo. Hoar Construction worked closely with the family who developed the original Park Lane Apartments to create a modern and unique version of their original dream.
Avalon – Alpharetta, GA: Hoar Construction demolished an abandoned multi-story concrete eyesore, and built a massive retail and mixed use destination in its place. Avalon opened in October 2014, offering more than 50 retailers, 10 restaurants, 240 luxury apartments, 2 parking decks, a movie theater and a Whole Foods Grocery store to the community.
One Lake’s Edge – The Woodlands, TX: This massive multifamily development was built in just 18 months. Even though the project team was able to use technology and teamwork to work fast, they didn’t sacrifice any quality. One Lake’s Edge has 390 residential units with views of Lake Woodlands, plus amenities like a state-of-the-art fitness center, oversized pool deck, and club room overlooking the lake.
