[BUILD] Wins Three 2016 Sand Dollar Awards

On September 24, [BUILD] was presented with three coveted Sand Dollar Awards by the Collier Building Industry Association (CBIA) at the annual awards banquet, which recognizes excellence in the building industry.

[BUILD] won the following Sand Dollar Awards: Best Office/Commercial Park under $1,000,000 for the [BUILD] headquarters; Best Retail Project under $1,000,000 for the Republic of Decor; and Best Public Works ($1,000,001 – $3,000,000) for the Marco YMCA Youth Development Center.

The [BUILD] headquarters was designed to create a cutting edge, collaborative workspace for a growing, industry leading commercial and luxury home construction management firm. One of the goals included maximizing natural light into the interior of the office with the glass walls and contemporary style.

With the modern industrial architecture and style of the Design Park building, the Republic of Decor space was built out with contemporary design in mind. Wide planked wood floors, wall coverings, and draperies were used to create an environment that emulated a modern residential loft.

The Marco YMCA’s design goal was to achieve a durable, long lasting space for the youth of Marco Island while being conscience of budget constraints. This project was a high profile project for the Marco Island community and was completed successfully with being built on time and on budget.

The Sand Dollar Awards, the highest accolades given by the Sales and Marketing Council of the CBIA, are presented annually to members who have demonstrated building, design and marketing excellence in the Collier County area. The awards are presented to the winners as a result of judging by experts from across the state of Florida.
