SAN DIEGO — The Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) in August announced the 2014 winners of the Design-Build Project/Team Awards. The awards honor projects across the construction spectrum from health care to wastewater, and recognize exemplary collaboration and integration in design-build project delivery. Awards will be presented at the 2014 Design-Build Conference and Expo in Dallas this October.
The joint venture of Turner/PCL/Flatiron was honored specifically in the DBIA’s Aviation category for its work on The Green Build Terminal Expansion at the San Diego International Airport. The $480 million Terminal 2 project includes a three-story, 460,000-square-foot expansion with 10 new gates, twice as many security lanes, expanded concessions and 1.5 million square feet of new taxiway and jet parking, according to a statement provided by the firm.
Originally targeted for LEED Silver certification, the expansion ultimately received LEED Platinum from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), making it the only commercial airport in the country to receive this rating.
"We’d like to thank the DBIA for the Aviation, National Award of Merit. We are very pleased to have this significant project and our design-build team recognized nationally by the DBIA,” said Dale Kain, vice president and district manager for PCL, in a statement. “PCL is honored to be counted among DBIA’s award winners.”
The award-winning projects were selected by a panel of industry experts, according to a statement issued by the DBIA. These projects demonstrated excellence in design, process and teaming, in addition to achieving budget and schedule goals and exceeding owner expectations. Categories span both horizontal and vertical construction, and include: aviation; civic buildings; commercial/office buildings; industrial/process/research facilities; educational facilities; health care facilities; rehabilitation/renovation/restoration; transportation; and water/wastewater.
“This year’s award competition was the most rigorous to date with a greater emphasis on best practices and teamwork, as well as the successful delivery of the project,” said Lisa Washington, CAE, executive director and CEO of DBIA, in a statement. “As a result, the 2014 winners showcase unique applications of design-build best practices to raise the industry’s bar even higher and are shining examples of what can be accomplished through Design-Build Done Right.”
