Chattanooga-based professional organizations in architecture, construction, engineering and design announced the 6th Annual BRIC Awards to recognize the people and projects that highlight the best of the best in the building industry.

The intent of the AGC’s BRIC Awards is to acknowledge excellence in construction projects and to elevate the standards of the construction industry. EMJ is honored to receive the Associated General Contractors Excellence in Construction in Building Renovation for the Hunter Museum River Terrace project.

This People’s Choice Award recognizes outstanding renovation work, state-of-the-art advancement, project management, innovation in construction techniques, collaboration, environmental sensitivity and more.

“The team overcame several challenges to successfully complete this project, and project success was dependent upon a collaborative approach among the Hunter Museum, HK Architects, EMJ, and the city of Chattanooga,” said Chas Torrence, Executive Vice President of EMJ’s Southeast office. “The completion of the River Terrace renovation provided both social and economic benefit for the community so the museum could continue to educate the community through art preservation, history, and culture, and we are proud to have been a part of it.”

EMJ’s involvement with the Hunter Museum of American Art began in 2005, and we are thankful to have had the opportunity to partner again in 2021.

“The Hunter Museum was extremely pleased with the finished product delivered by EMJ and would highly recommend the level of service EMJ brings to its projects,” said Virginia Anne Sharber, Director of the Hunter Museum of American Art.
