Dallas, Texas – The Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) trade association recently honored Adolfson & Peterson Construction Gulf States (AP Gulf States) at the 2023 ABC National Convention in Kissimmee, Florida.
Project team members in AP’s Gulf States region attended the Excellence in Construction Awards ceremony. AP’s project entailing addition and renovation work at Park Cities Presbyterian Church (PCPC) in Dallas received ABC’s National Excellence in Construction (EIC) Eagle Award.
“This award honors the unique challenges we overcame in the complex circumstances of the pandemic,” said Michael Ortiz, AP Project Executive. “Park Cities Presbyterian Church, built in 1915, is a historic campus located in a landlocked urban area. Our team’s historical renovation expertise was essential to preserving the neo-Gothic architecture and other unique structural elements. In addition, the church facilities had to remain operational throughout construction, which required streamlined scheduling and careful coordination to minimize operational impacts. As a team, we also prioritized the safety of the Park Cities community and congregation, especially the youth, to ensure the best possible construction excellence for our client.”
The PCPC project included a 67,000-sf expansion and an additional 66,982-sf of renovation work to the existing church space. Additionally, construction of a new subterranean parking garage and extended surface parking increased on-site parking availability from 157 to approximately 400 total spaces.
“The EIC awards honor every member of the construction team, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer, which is a testament to the collaboration that it took to complete this project. These facility upgrades have already made a positive impact on the religious community in Park Cities and we couldn’t be happier with the results,” Ortiz continued.
The expansion includes a new children’s ministry space offering an early care and education program for the community. There is also a new youth ministry facility containing a full-sized high school gymnasium as well as new indoor and outdoor community spaces featuring an expansive foyer, a courtyard and other key elements.
ABC presented its latest EIC awards to 82 of the nation’s top construction projects in 2022. This prestigious awards program is one of the construction industry’s leading national competitions that honors general and specialty contractors for world-class, safe and innovative construction projects.
