PARIC Teams Earn Top Construction Awards
Two construction projects by PARIC, one of the largest privately held companies in the Midwest, earned special recognition in the Keystone Awards of the Associated General Contractors of Missouri.
The top award was for the Delmar DivINe tenant fit-out in St. Louis in which 21 tenants each were empowered to design their space – from total square footage to the smallest of finishes. On a single, tight completion date, the PARIC team managed the unique needs of 21 different 501c3 tenants and 256 alternates within 12 weeks.
A finalist award recognized work for the Friendship Village Chesterfield campus expansion in which 30 of the facility’s 37 acres were impacted. The construction team added 52 independent living apartments and 54 assisted living units plus 90 skilled nursing beds and rehabilitation areas. A gym, clubhouse, ice cream parlor and a creative arts studio also were added, and a new chapel was completed in the heart of the campus.
During construction, the facility was home to 400-plus residents with an average age of 82 and required diligent monitoring of all site activities to ensure the safety of residents, staff and visitors. The project had zero resident injuries, zero accidents, zero Covid cases and zero lost days due to Covid.
Congratulations to both teams!
