21 May Commercial Interiors Two-Time Award Winner Washington Building Congress 2021 Craftsmanship Awards
Washington Building Congress just announced the winners of their 65th Annual 2021 Craftsmanship Awards. Commercial Interiors, a two-time award recipient, won for their excellent performance on Morgan State University’s Calvin & Tina Tyler Hall new student services center in Baltimore, Maryland, and the West Half Street luxury apartments in Washinton, DC.
“I am so proud of the Commercial Interiors team! I credit this well-deserved accomplishment to the leadership of our VP of Operations, Jeff Kuhn; Site Managers Osman Enamorado and Thomas Thornton; Foremen Domingo Avila Gonzalez, Salomon Horta-Garcia, Luis Velasquez, and Jose Francisco Portillo; and Labor Formen Jason Hurley and Carlos Pineda,” says Milton Matthews, President of Commercial Interiors. “These men and their teams worked masterfully to deliver superior craftsmanship and fantastic customer service.”
Morgan State University’s Calvin & Tina Tyler Hall new student services center is a state-of-the-art support services facility and the latest addition to Morgan State University’s 152-year-old campus. The $88 million, 139,000 SF building includes a 3-story atrium, a 250-seat auditorium, and will house nearly 20 student departments. The building has achieved LEED Silver certification.
Benjamin Morgan, Vice President of Barton Malow Builders, said, “Barton Malow/JLN are proud of our trade partnership with Commercial Interiors and the level of craftsmanship they displayed to deliver a high-quality product for the Calvin & Tina Tyler Hall.”
West Half Street luxury apartments is a newly constructed trophy-class, 11-story residential tower containing 465 class-A residential apartment units. The mixed-use project includes 361,000 SF of residential space and 65,00 SF of prime retail space on the second and ground floor.
Luca Covi, Senior Project Manager of HITT said, “It was my first experience working with you and your organization, and I truly look forward to the opportunity of working with you all again. The project was a triumph because of a strong team, and Commercial was by far one of our strongest teammates. From problem-solving early, to continually and proactively looking ahead, and to fully understanding and adhering to special (and seemingly ever-changing) guidelines/restrictions, Commercial made it possible to complete West Half successfully.”
Congratulations to the Commercial Interiors team!
