Robins & Morton earned two national Excellence in Construction® Eagle Awards for their work at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C., and Duke Raleigh Hospital in Raleigh, presented during the ABC Convention 2022 in San Antonio, on March 16.
The EIC awards are the construction industry’s leading national competition that honors general and specialty contractors for world-class, safe and innovative construction projects from across the nation.
The two winners include:
Duke Raleigh Hospital, South Pavilion. Opened in July 2021, the 265,288-square-foot South Pavilion fulfills the decade-long vision to create a world-class treatment facility for the fast-growing Raleigh, North Carolina, community. The project required a multi-layered planning and preconstruction effort to upgrade essential infrastructure and mitigate the risks of building the new hospital within a few feet of patients and staff in the adjacent North Pavilion hospital.
Duke Health Anlyan Generator Hub. Duke Health’s Anlyan Generator Hub provides resilient electrical power to support 950,000 square feet of existing and planned patient space at Duke’s flagship Durham campus. Robins & Morton, together with its integrated project team, met the client’s desire for a low-profile building by constructing much of the structure and its supporting infrastructure underground, all while working within a few feet of patient spaces.
This national EIC award honors every member of the construction team, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. The winning projects are judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation and safety.
A panel of industry experts served as the competition’s judges. This year’s judges included representatives from the Smithsonian Facilities Construction Division, Construction Management Association of America, Engineering News-Record, Design-Build Institute of America, University Research Institute and various construction-related firms nationwide.
