Beck Group/Atlanta wins AGC Build Georgia Award
Site-specific safety plan, BIM analysis and third-party structural review contributed to successful implementation.
The Beck Group has been awarded The 2012 Build Georgia Award by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) for its Cave Spring Rehabilitation Center project.
Beck was the Construction Manager at Risk on the project which was completed on budget by the defined completion date, with zero lost-time accidents.
The Georgia Department of Labor’s Cave Spring Rehabilitation Center provides job and life skills training for people with disabilities, specializing in those with hearing impairments. As part of the project, The Beck Group replaced 50-year-old buildings with a state-of-the-art campus facility that allows for the future expansion of client services. Project plans included designing the new facilities with ADA Plus capabilities, which emphasizes accessibility and technology to meets the needs of those with disabilities.
The end result produced a 17,690-sf classroom/administration building and a 19,690-sf,, two-story dormitory with 52 beds, a restaurant-style kitchen and hotel grade laundry facilities.
Both structures were built to accommodate and train students in the food services and hotel industries and were also equipped with a message board and visual convenience/emergency notification system specifically tailored to those with hearing impairments. Additionally, two teaching greenhouses, an outdoor amphitheater, basketball court, dog walking park and walking trails were completed.
With this achievement, The Beck Group has accumulated more than 500 construction, design, real estate and organizational awards, including Fortune’s 100 Best Places to Work. The company’s craftsmanship and respectful rapport with clients, subcontractors and industry colleagues contributes to Beck’s reputation for delivering Better Buildings, Better Built. +
