On October 23, 2019, the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. Virginia Chapter recognized W. M. Jordan Company at its 2019 Excellence in Construction Awards. Each year, the Excellence in Construction Awards recognizes and celebrates leading projects from ABC-VA members. These awards highlight quality workmanship on projects and overall excellence in build and design.
W. M. Jordan Company’s VCU Gladding Residence Center received two awards, taking home ABC-VA’s best in show award: Overall Excellence in Construction, while also winning the Honor Award of Excellence: Educational – Public & Private Schools.
The 12 story, 371,000 sq foot residence hall is the largest student dormitory in Virginia. It houses over 1,500 students in 784 units, and includes amenities such as a fitness center, mail room, work space for students and faculty and a large conference center. The building is subdivided into six neighborhoods of approximately 125-200 students. These neighborhoods provide an intimate community with their own shared kitchens, laundry facilities, study areas and lounges that promote community development and student interaction.
W. M. Jordan was also recognized with the Award of Excellence: Educational – Public & Private Schools and the Allegiance Award: Educational – Public & Private Schools for our work on CNU’s Trible Library Expansion. The Allegiance Award recognizes the project that utilized the most ABC-VA trade partners during construction.
CNU’s Trible Library Phase Two expansion included over 66,000 sq feet of new space, including 800 new seats, additional reading and private study rooms, a media center, 100 seat lecture hall, additional stack space and several new classrooms. Prior to the Phase Two Expansion, W. M. Jordan Company completed an expansion and renovation of the original John Smith Library in 2008, which was then renamed the Trible Library.
W. M. Jordan Project Administrator Jerri Michael was also honored with ABC-VA’s Project Administrator of the Year. Click Here for more on her story!
W. M. Jordan would like to thank ABC-VA for the recognition, and congratulate everyone involved in making these projects come to life. Our relentless pursuit of excellence never stops, and we look forward to continuing to build the best.
