The Bank of Lincoln County project has won an Excellence in Construction Award for commercial building projects between two and five million dollars. The award was given by the Association of Builders and Contractors, Inc., North Alabama Chapter. Some of the judging criteria included, safety, scope of work, references and project narrative.
The addition and renovation of this bank was a team effort headed by the owner, Fuqua & Partners Architects and FBC, Inc. The total renovated area was about 10,148 sq. ft. on the first floor, 6,048 on the second and 2,988 in the basement. A total of 38,500 man hours were expended on the project with FBC, Inc. self-performing about 25%. Although the bank remained in business during the entire construction process, demolition of most of the existing building was eventually required. This required a high level of daily communication and coordination between the owner, occupants, customers and construction workers. The entrance into the bank was even relocated three times during construction. See pictures of the project in our Portfolio/Commercial/Financial section.
