Wohlsen Wins Three National Awards

Baltimore. MD (March 21, 2016)Wohlsen Construction’s Hamilton Health Center project was honored with three National awards at the Associated Builders and Contractors’ 2015 Excellence in Construction Awards Gala.  Wohlsen teamed with Murray Associates Architects, PC, of Harrisburg, Pa. to design and build the new medical and dental clinic located in the Allison Hills Neighborhood in Harrisburg, Pa.
The awards earned for the project include a first place Eagle Award in the Renovation $10 – $100 million category, one of two national Design/Build Award, recognizing the project team for their combined efforts and innovative design/build practices, and one of three national Greener Tomorrow awards, recognizing the project for its sustainable features.
The Hamilton Health Center provides the Federally Qualified Health Care Provider with a modern and functional facility easily accessed by the members of the community it serves. The two-phase adaptive reuse of an abandoned press building into the health center was located on a contaminated brownfield site in the underprivileged Allison Hills Neighborhood of Harrisburg. The project serves as a catalyst for additional development in one of the poorest and most densely populated areas of Harrisburg, PA.
“Associated Builders and Contractors is honored to recognize Wohlsen Construction Company with a well-deserved Excellence in Construction Eagle Award for their commitment to high quality construction, innovation and safety in their work on Hamilton Health Center,” said 2016 ABC National Chair David Chapin, president of Willmar Electric Service, Lincoln, Neb. “Wohlsen Construction’s performance is a great example of the impressive work Associated Builders and Contractors’ member companies produce and we are happy to claim this project for the merit shop construction industry.”
Wohlsen Construction has led a variety of both adaptive reuse projects and health care centers. As a Construction Management and General Contracting firm, Wohlsen offers a full-range of construction services.
