We are thrilled to announce that Hoefer Welker received a Design-Build Excellence in Design Award from the Design-Build Institute of America, Mid-America Region for the Northland Innovation Center in Gladstone, Mo.
The Design-Build Awards are given annually to projects that achieve the best value while meeting design and construction quality, cost and schedule goals. Submissions are rigorously judged by a panel of industry experts. Winning projects demonstrate advanced and innovative application of total integrated project delivery, including design-build best practices.
The Northland Innovation Center (NIC) will create learning opportunities for future generations that occupy a space programmed for Gladstone’s walkability and expressive community. All members of our design-build team were engaged in the design and construction from the inception of the project.
Hoefer Welker, in partnership with JE Dunn Construction, also received a Merit Award for its involvement with designing Eglin Hospital for the U.S. Air Force Base in Niceville, Fla. The project is one of their largest hospitals, and features simple wayfinding, upgraded outpatient and inpatient entries, as well as appropriate zoning and separation of patient and public circulation areas.
Congratulations to all on these tremendous achievements!
