On Thursday, October 19, 2017, Russell was honored with a Merit Award at the Design-Build Institute of America Mid-America Region’s 2017 Design-Build Awards for our work on the University of Iowa’s Hawkeye Tennis and Recreation Complex (HTRC).
The University of Iowa manages millions of dollars of construction projects on an annual basis. This incredible volume of projects, coupled with a need to achieve a faster speed to market and a desire for the best possible value, led them to seek approval for the first Design-Build Board of Regents project in the history of the state.
The 82,000 s.f. HTRC project was completed in 2014 and includes an indoor and outdoor turf practice field and support services. The support services are located near the connection area to the existing building and include a corridor/lobby area, restrooms, concessions area, conference room, offices, storage room, band instrument storage area and mechanical/electric rooms.
Judges determined the winners based on how the team successfully achieved owner/user project goals through design-build best practices, innovative use of new systems, methods and processes, safety, aesthetics, design quality and functionality.
The Design-Build Institute of America Mid-America Region (DBIA-MAR) that includes Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas, has been recognizing excellence in design-build practices and informing the public of the breadth and value of design-build delivery for over 17 years.
