St. Gabriel’s Community project in Bismarck, N.D., has earned Nor-Son an Eagle Award in the Healthcare $10-$25 million category of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Excellence in Construction Awards.
Nor-Son’s representatives received the awards February 22 during the 21st annual Excellence in Construction Awards celebration at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Orlando, Florida.
“ABC congratulates Nor-Son for its exceptional work on the St. Gabriel’s Community project,” said Michael D. Bellaman, ABC president and CEO. “This project is an outstanding example of the innovation and commitment to superior craftsmanship that embody merit shop construction.”
Nor-son designed and built the 60,131 sq foot senior health care facility while working closely with the Benedictine Health System to formulate and cast their vision of a living community by creating quaint neighborhoods that provide a “household” model of care. Each neighborhood includes living, dining and family space which creates a comforting, warm environment that feels like home.
A panel of industry experts served as the competition’s judges. This year’s panel included representatives from the Design-Build Institute of America, Engineering News-Record, the American Institute of Architects, and the National Association of Women in Construction, and representatives from higher education, among others.
