Pinnacle Winners Advance Construction And Enhance The Carolinas!

Because of extremely limited project access, the bridge was built incrementally and "launched" across the breach in sections. This intense pace continued without a single lost time injury, including specialty contractors, and in just 40 days a new bridge restored normal life to all of the residents, tourists, and businesses located along the Outer Banks.

BEST BUILDING PROJECT (1 of 2 awards) Restorations to the Hull of the Battleship North Carolina

Contractor: Taylor Brothers Marine Construction Wilmington, North Carolina

The historic Battleship North Carolina, the most decorated of World War II, had suffered major external and internal erosion in its berth on the Cape Fear River. This project required replacing 132 feet of 10-foot tall hull plating—while working under the waterline. Tons of materials had to be lifted immediately adjacent to the starboard bow, and Taylor Brothers invented a custom series of lift and transfer plans to ensure that tourists were clear of the danger area.

Divers mapped the exact contours of hull in order to execute a unique cofferdam strategy originated by Taylor Brothers, accommodating major tidal shifts and horizontal water forces while providing workers access to remove and replace hull portions.

Completed within 180 calendar days, the project came in safely, on schedule and within budget, without impacting the public's access to one of North Carolina's top tourist attractions.

BEST BUILDING PROJECT (2 of 2 awards) The Nature Research Center, Raleigh, North Carolina

Contractor: Clancy & Theys Construction Company Raleigh, North Carolina

The Nature Research Center (NRC) is the new 80,000-square-foot wing of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.

This project's most sweeping differentiator was the use of 3-D Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology. Its virtual advance clash detection allowed the project's signature Daily Planet structure to be constructed offsite in precise spherical detail and subsequently pinned to the corner of the new building, with no structural support beneath it.
