Miller-Davis gets Build Michigan honor
KALAMAZOO — During the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Michigan’s annual meeting, Miller-Davis Co. was presented with the 2008 Build Michigan Award for its work on the Weimer K. Hicks Center Renovation project at Kalamazoo College. Miller-Davis was one of seven firms in the state recognized by the AGC during the meeting in Grand Rapids.
“We are proud to be acknowledged for our efforts and included in the excitement around Kalamazoo’s first LEED-certified new construction project,” said Rex Bell, president of Miller-Davis.
Build Michigan project entries are judged on: meeting the challenge of a difficult job; excellence in project management; innovation in construction techniques; sensitivity to the environment; responsiveness to client needs; and the contractor’s contribution to the community.
“The Hicks Student Center was the most difficult project ever undertaken on Kalamazoo College’s campus,” said Tom Ponto, vice president of business and finance. Ponto said Miller-Davis was selected by Kalamazoo College to renovate the Hicks Center because of its past performance on the college’s library in addition to the talented staff, which includes five LEED-accredited professionals to support such an effort.
