S&P’s work to rebuild and enhance the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral (AGOC) in Houston has been recognized in recent weeks for outstanding construction.
First, in its annual competition, Engineering News Record (ENR) Magazine named the expansion of the nearly 70-year old church into a cathedral as the Best Cultural/Worship project in Texas and Louisiana. ENR Texas/Louisiana received more than 130 entries and named winners in 17 categories. Being named the best project in in its category in the region places the Cathedral into consideration for a national award.
Next, the Associated General Contractors (AGC) Texas Building Branch (TBB) cited the AGOC as the best project in the Building 3 ($5-$10 million) General Contractor category in its annual Outstanding Construction Awards (OCA) competition. The OCA attracts entries from across Texas and the projects are judged by a panel of industry experts. S&P is one of just two Houston General Contractors to win top place in the statewide competition. At the end of the AGC TBB award ceremony, the AGOC was announced as the “Best of the Build” – the best project across the state! It has been advanced for consideration at the national level.
One of the most significant considerations for these awards is overcoming obstacles. The additions and renovations to the historic facility were complex and posed many challenges but the S&P-led team performed extraordinarily well – and that work is being recognized.
Congratulations to the entire team!
