March 22, 2018 – West Construction Company was recently recognized by the Associated General Contractors of Georgia (AGC Georgia) for the construction of Bouhan Falligant’s new office building, located at One West Park Avenue. The project received first place in the “new construction” category.

The 18,000 square foot Class A office building located on the south side of Forsyth Park was completed under budget and ahead of schedule in nine months despite Hurricane Matthew striking Savannah during construction. The building features a detailed masonry façade of brick and cast stone, and modern energy efficient interiors including a VRF HVAC system and LED lighting.

The building was designed by Felder & Associates Architects, Chatham Engineering, and Thomas and Hutton Engineering.

“This was a very rewarding project for us, and it’s especially gratifying to be recognized by your industry peers in such a significant way,” said West Construction Company President Matt West. “The AGC is a valuable construction industry partner and advocate, and we appreciate all they do to help promote the construction industry and its members.”

AGC Georgia is the leading, statewide trade association representing 550 of the top companies comprising the commercial construction industry in Georgia. The organization holds an annual awards competition where projects are judged on their ability to demonstrate excellence in several categories including exceptional project safety performance, overcoming the challenges of a difficult project, innovation in construction techniques and materials, excellence in project management and scheduling, and dedication to client service and customer care. The selection panel includes industry professionals and hundreds of projects are submitted annually.

“Awards like this confirm our decision to partner with the strong team at West Construction to build our new office building at One West Park Avenue,” said Lea Holliday, managing partner, Bouhan Falligant. “Our state-of-the-art offices reflect the excellent design and the latest in technology to allow us to serve our clients efficiently now and into the future.”

Award recipients will be featured in the June 8th issue of the Atlanta Business Chronicle and will receive the award at the AGC Georgia Annual Convention in June.
