Engineering News Record magazine (ENR) released its national “Best of the Best Projects” winners for 2014, designed to identify the pinnacle of design and construction achievements in the U.S. among projects completed between June 2013 and June 2014. Choate Construction Company won two of these awards.
The Clemson University SCE&G Energy Innovation Center, located in North Charleston, SC, won Best of the Best in the Energy/Industrial category in the nation.
The Carter’s, Inc. buildout in Atlanta, GA won for the Best Interiors/Tenant Improvement category in the nation.
The initial call for entries resulted in over 700 project teams submitting their best work to the regional Best Projects competitions. In each of the 10 regions, the editors assembled panels of judges to select the regional winners in 20 categories.
Once the regional winners were chosen, the top winners in each category from each region moved up to the national competition. A new set of judges from across the country examined each project in an effort to distinguish the best from the best in terms of teamwork, safety, overcoming challenges, innovation and quality.
“It is an incredible honor to receive one of these awards, let alone two, and we are thoroughly pleased to see these amazing projects receive such esteemed industry recognition,” says Millard Choate, President of Choate Construction. “All team members involved on both the SCE&G Energy Innovation Center and the Carter’s, Inc. buildout should be very proud. Thank you for your dedication and commitment to excellence.”
