Ed McGuire, Vice President of Construction, and Kyle Whitesell, Senior Project Manager, accept the 2006 AGC Summit Award for Bob Moore Construction Company from AGC / QUOIN

ARLINGTON, TEXAS - April 14, 2006 - Bob Moore Construction has received the 2006 Summit Award from QUOIN, the North and East Texas Chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

Competition included project submissions from 28 general contractors and construction companies in north and east Texas, recognizing the top construction project in various building categories. Projects were judged on a variety of criteria, including:

  • difficulty in construction resulting from design, location, materials, etc.;
  • unusual construction techniques involved; final appearance and quality of the finished product;
  • timeliness of completion; and
  • the safety program for the general contractor's overall safety program and special safety initiatives implemented for the particular project.

Bob Moore Construction's Summit Award recognized the Trammell Crow Company CargoCentre™ III and AirFreight & LogisticsCentres™ complex at D/FW Airport. This four-building project included the 116,000 SF Air CargoCentre™ III and AirFreight & LogisticsCentres™ 1, 2 and 3 (sized 114,000, 113,000 and 54,000 SF respectively). A key feature of the Air CargoCentre™ is that it is the first cargo facility in the United States that will support parking for the new Airbus A380 aircraft.

The 2006 Summit Award comes on the heels of Bob Moore Construction's selection as General Contractor of the Year by AGC / QUOIN in 2005. Later in 2005 their Cinemark theater project in Mansfield, Texas received the prestigious "Best Of" Award for Sports / Entertainment Facility Construction from Texas Construction Magazine

"We're delighted to receive the 2006 Summit Award," said Phillip Bell, President of Bob Moore Construction Company. "It took a tremendous amount of work and commitment to bring this project to reality. There may not be a more challenging environment, in terms of federal and state regulatory requirements, to build a large complex of industrial buildings than along the runway of a fully operational, international airport. In spite of this, our project manager Kyle Whitesell did a phenomenal job of meeting Trammell Crow's exacting standards and delivering the buildings on schedule, while maintaining the secure area and staying in compliance with all the federal and state laws and regulations.

Kyle Whitesell, Senior Project Manager for Bob Moore Construction, poses with the 2006 Summt Award from AGC / QUOIN"I think the award recognizes the significance of the project as well as its unique construction challenges and features," Bell added. "The CargoCentre™ III and AirFreight & LogisticsCentres™ could well prove to be the most important cargo complex ever built at D/FW Airport. It opens the doors to international shipping on a whole new level and positions North Texas as a national leader in the air cargo industry, with capabilities no other U.S. city or state can match. This was an important project as well as a very challenging one, and we're pleased that QUOIN recognized it as such."

"I'm very proud and excited to have played a part in this award-winning project, "said Kyle Whitesell, Senior Project Manager for Bob Moore Construction Company. "You always feel good about finishing a big project, but this one could have major economic significance for the entire region for decades to come. It's very gratifying to have played a part in that.

"Any construction project is a collaborative effort," Whitesell said, "but this one required a tremendous amount of communication and teamwork. There was constant coordination needed between the subcontractors, our representatives, Trammell Crow and the airport. Our subcontractors and our site superintendent Steve Barrons did a great job from start to finish. Our Safety Director, Dino Sideris, played a pivotal role in developing procedures that kept our workers safe and in compliance with the laws as well. Steven Bradford and Robert Brandt with Trammell Crow and Naresh Shahani, Doug Bryan and Curtis Inglis with DFW Airport were excellent to work with as well. This project needed a construction Dream Team and that's what Steven Bradford and Robert Brandt assembled."

The award was presented at an April 13 banquet held at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas.
