The southeast chapter of the Design-Build Institute of America has awarded Charlotte-based A M King Construction the Best Project Renovation/Rehabilitation/Restoration award for its work on the ALDI Corporate office building expansion in Batavia, Illinois.
Winning projects must show early collaboration, be completed on time and on budget with no litigation, and demonstrate "total integrated project delivery and finding unique solutions to challenges during the project," the institute says.
"We are proud of both the process of designing and building the ALDI Corporate office building, and the product we achieved," A M King Construction partner Brian King said in a release.
ALDI, Inc., called on A M King Construction to add a 95,000-square-foot, class-A office building to its U.S. Corporate Headquarters Campus, and provide renovations throughout its existing buildings. The project involved incorporating the new office building into a crowded campus, which included multiple existing adjacent office buildings. A M King also added 58,000 square feet of parking, relocated roadway and site structures, and provided numerous site improvements.
“We were up against several challenges with this project, including multiple labor strikes and a harsh Chicago-area winter,” A M King Construction’s Operations Director Dan Crist said. “We were constantly revising schedules and plans to overcome these obstacles. Not only did we achieve a level of quality well above traditional construction projects, we did this on time and even realized cost savings for our client.”
Founded in 2004, A M King Construction is a full service design-build and construction services company serving the food manufacturing, food distribution and clean manufacturing industries.
