The Associated General Contractors of Ohio have announced the winners of their Build Ohio awards, including a first-place finish for the locally-based real estate investment firm The ConnorGroup’s new Central Support Office.
The projected, completed earlier this year, won in the “New Construction Under $20 Million” category. AGC organizers noted “the $18 million corporate headquarters was constructed with no curved lines on the exterior and very few right angles. More than 2,000 individual triangles came together to make the iconic facade. It incorporates 2,600 exterior panels, and nearly every panel is like no other. While the building twists and warps, every individual line is perfectly straight.”
Winners are eligible for the prestigious Alliant Build America awards.
The AGC honor marks the second award for the building, located at Wright Brothers Airport in Miami Township. In August of 2012, before the project even broke ground, it won an American Architecture Award based on its design. The winners-which came from across the U.S., China, India, Saudi Arabia, France and Switzerland, among others-became part of a traveling international exhibition.
The Connor Group, which started in 1991 with $400,000 to purchase three apartment communities in Dayton, now has more than $1.6 billion in assets. It owns and operates communities in Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Columbus, Dallas, Dayton, Nashville and Raleigh-Durham.
