Brasfield & Gorrie win ‘Project of Year’ for Cyber school

HUNTSVILLE — General contractors Brasfield & Gorrie won “Project of the Year” for its work on the Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering.

The award from the North Alabama chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors was presented at the annual Excellence in Construction awards competition in Huntsville.

The ASCTE project was also recognized with a Commitment to Safety award and a first-place Excellence in Construction award.

“We share these awards with our partners and trade contractors, whose collaboration and teamwork were imperative to the success of the project,” said Sara Beth Wilcox, vice president and division manager at Brasfield & Gorrie. “It’s an honor to be recognized by ABC, especially for a project that serves not only our local community but students from across the state of Alabama.”

The public residential magnet school includes a 76,500 square-foot academic building with space for 400 students, and a 51,400 square-foot, 150-bed residence hall.

The academic building is four stories tall, clad in glass and terracotta over a steel structure. It includes science labs, machine shops, a fabrication and engineering lab, and a cyber range.

The similarly designed residence hall consists of three floors of dorm rooms. A bottom floor is a podium housing support space, which includes a basement-level cafeteria and fitness facilities that double as a storm shelter.

The residence hall also includes three multi-bedroom apartments, equipped with kitchens and laundry, so full-time faculty and their families can live among the students as residence assistants.

Brasfield & Gorrie has worked in the Huntsville market for more than 40 years and established a local office in 2012.
