New South Construction honored with 2017 AGC Build Georgia AwardsWednesday, April 5, 2017

New South Construction Company has received multiple honors in the 2017 Associated General Contractors of Georgia (AGC Georgia) Build Georgia Awards, which recognize construction firms’ excellence and exceptional projects completed in the past year across the state. Two New South Construction projects, Northwest Medical Center and Atlanta Botanical Gardens, received first-place honors, while two other New South ventures, Skyland Trail-Rollins Center and Terrell County Regional Youth Detention Center, received merit honors. All four New South projects will be recognized at the 2017 AGC Build Georgia Awards this summer. “Receiving four prestigious AGC Build Georgia Awards is a tribute to the outstanding work of everyone at New South Construction,” said Chairman and CEO Douglas Davidson. “We would not be in this position without the support of our partners and clients.” Northwest Medical Center enlisted New South to lead renovations to the terrace level and lobbies of a four-story, occupied building, and to replace the first-level parking deck slab. Renovations and additions at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens also earned New South top honors. The AGC Build Georgia Awards recognize outstanding achievements in the construction industry. Winning projects represent the best the construction industry has to offer by both general contractors and specialty contractors who must demonstrate 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 2017 awards will be presented at the AGC’s Annual Convention, June 11-14, at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club.
