Associated Builders and Contractors announced Robins & Morton as the 2018 National Excellence in Construction Eagle Award winner at the 28th Annual Excellence in Construction Gala held in March.
Robins & Morton’s first-place Eagle Award winners include:
Choctaw Nation Regional Health Clinic in Durant, Oklahoma Healthcare, $50 million to $100 million category
Built upon what was previously pastureland, Choctaw Nation Regional Medical Clinic’s three-building campus consists of a two-story, 146,093-square-foot main clinic, a smaller one-story, 16,108-square-foot health service administration building and an 11,750-square-foot facilities building, all connected externally by a network of canopied sidewalks. As the centerpiece of the 20-acre, $73-million campus-style development, the clinic is fundamentally a hospital, but devoid of the overnight accommodations. Complete with various departments such as outpatient surgery, dental and audiology, ophthalmology and behavioral health, the 146,093-square-foot facility perfectly captures the spirituality, passion and history of the Choctaw tribe. Ultimately, some 260,000 members of the Choctaw and other tribes will be serviced by the clinic, part of a tribal-wide program to provide medical clinics in different geographic areas. Robins & Morton also received an additional Productivity Award for utilizing innovative productivity methods on this project.
Duke University Medical Center Cardiac Intensive Care Unit and Infrastructure Upgrade in Durham, North Carolina Healthcare $5 million to $10 million category
As part of a comprehensive, multi-year transformation initiative, Duke administrators contracted with Robins & Morton to plan and construct a full-scale renovation and infrastructure upgrade for a new Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. The 17-bed CICU is the most sophisticated and technology-enabled cardiac care facility in the region. It is located within the main Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina.
A panel of industry experts served as the competition’s judges. This year’s panel included representatives from the Design-Build Institute of America, the Construction Users Roundtable, among others.
