AUSTIN, Texas – On October 9, Associated Builders and Contractors Central Texas Chapter (ABC) recognized Austin Commercial for the Austin Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA) Parking Garage, and the ARRIVE East Austin Hotel at the Excellence in Construction Awards (EIC), which showcased projects built by ABC Central Texas members that were rigorously judged on an array of criteria. This event recognizes outstanding projects in the commercial and industrial construction industry.
Austin Commercial had the opportunity to enter the annual competition and was judged on safety, quality, ingenuity, and workmanship. The project was evaluated by local owners, architects, and engineers on safety, execution of design, craftsmanship, attention to detail, installation, and other considerations. The company was awarded the ICE Award for the ABIA Garage project, and the Merit Award for ARRIVE East Austin, and is considered among the best of merit shop construction.
The new Austin-Bergstrom International Airport Parking Garage and Administration Offices project includes a 2,100,000 square foot cast-in-place concrete parking structure including 5,800 parking spaces, an 80,000 square foot, five-story administrative office building, and multiple toll plaza additions. The project is adjacent to the airport’s recently completed consolidated car rental facility (ConRAC), which was also built by Austin Commercial.
The Arrive Hotel is a boutique hotel in the trendy East 6th Street district of Austin. The 58,600 square foot hotel features 83 rooms, underground parking, and repurposes a 100-year old warehouse to create Lefty’s Brick Bar.
ABC members are renowned for their dedication to safety and excellence in the construction field, and the awards program demonstrated that commitment.
