Seattle, Washington (August 8, 2013) – PCL Construction’s AMTRAK Pacific Northwest Facilities project has been awarded the 2013 National Design-Build of America (DBIA) Honor Award in the Industrial/Process/Research Facilities category.
"Everyone at PCL as well as the entire project team is extremely proud of the project and to be recognized by a nationally acclaimed organization such as DBIA is a great honor,” said Jason Goetz, PCL Project Manager. “The project made a profound impact on AMTRAK operations.”
The Amtrak facilities project required track and equipment relocation, sophisticated railroading systems installations, facilities upgrades, and the flexibility to execute while daily railroad operations continued uninterrupted. PCL’s 30-month construction schedule also finished six months early.
"PCL’s efforts exceeded our expectations in every respect and the project was a textbook example of the design-build procurement method.” said Dan Radeke, Project Manager at Amtrak Engineering. “It was my privilege to be able to work with PCL throughout the entire process."
According to DBIA, this year’s awards program was the most competitive to date. A panel of industry experts selected winning projects across multiple categories. Criterion include meeting budget and schedule goals, as well as demonstrating innovative application of total integrated project delivery and design-build best practices.
The best overall Design Excellence Award will be announced at the 2013 Design-Build Conference on November 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
