The Project Achievement Awards recognize excellence in the management of the construction process for projects delivered throughout North Texas.

On May 24, 2017, the North Texas Chapter of the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) held its third annual Project Achievement Awards banquet. This year, Faithful+Gould was recognized as a member of two project teams that received these prestigious awards. Farmer Brothers’ Project Evolution was recognized in the category of ‘newly constructed buildings with a value greater than $25 million’ and United Airlines’ Terminal C North Program at George Bush Intercontinental Airport Houston (IAH) was recognized in the category of ‘transportation projects valued greater than $100 million.’

Faithful+Gould served as owner’s representative on behalf of Famer Brothers for Project Evolution, a 540,000-square-foot headquarter campus relocation in Northlake, Texas. The campus includes a 95,000-square-foot LEED® Silver-certified administration building; a 127,000-square-foot manufacturing and roasting plant; a 258,000-square-foot distribution center; and 60,000 square feet appropriated for coffee bean receiving, storage and cleaning. As owner’s representative, the Faithful+Gould team was responsible for monitoring and managing the project schedule, objectives and milestones; contract management; risk management; project cost reporting; establishing and managing an execution strategy; overseeing scope and quality planning; and master scheduling throughout the project.

“We are thrilled to have worked on this award-winning project on behalf of Farmer Brothers,” shared Faithful+Gould Project Executive Rob Lillich. “This has been a true team effort and a visionary project for the client. It is gratifying to see the Farmer Brothers vision and the hard work of our team recognized in the receipt of this award.”

Faithful+Gould managed the Terminal C North Program in conjunction with VRX, Inc. and JLA Construction Solutions on behalf of United Airlines (United). The 264,00-square-foot, two-level facility was built by Manhattan Construction Company with a wide and high ceiling plan to permeate an airy feel for team members and passengers. It also features a custom-designed terrazzo floor throughout, and houses 14 gates with new jet bridges and accessories. New restaurants, a new food court and retail outlets complement a partnership between United and On The Go (OTG) to provide a dynamic design with the latest in travel restaurant technology. The second portion of the project, the ramp, fueling and utilities aspect, involved the removal and replacement of approximately 24 acres of 17.5-inch concrete apron paving surrounding the new concourse. Faithful+Gould verified that all required site utilities were provided, including, but not limited to, chilled and hot water, electrical, domestic water, fire water, sanitary sewer and drainage to the new concourse.

“The United Airlines Terminal C project incorporated a wide range of moving parts prior to completion,” said Faithful+Gould Project Executive Ashley Hough. “We are extremely proud to have delivered the project under budget, and to receive a Project Achievement Award for our dedicated involvement from a prestigious industry organization such as CMAA.”

The awards ceremony was held in the Grand Ballroom at the DFW Sheraton in Irving, Texas. For more information and the complete list of winners visit CMAA.com
