Dec. 10 — HKS Architects has received the Construction Owners Association of America’s project leadership gold award for its work on Florida Hospital East Orlando.

The hospital was originally licensed for 144 beds. The five-story project also included renovations and expansions for various departments, plus a new public concourse and a chapel and healing garden. The contractor on the project was Robins & Morton Group.
The award program recognizes owners whose design/build team demonstrates exceptional leadership and project management skills.
Founded in 1939, the firm with an office in Orlando completed construction projects totaling more than $36 billion in more than 650 cities located in 45 states, the District of Columbia, and 36 foreign countries
