Daytona Beach, FL — March 22, 2017— The DAYTONA Rising Frontstretch Grandstand Replacement project has been acknowledged by Associated General Contractors of America as the best project of 2016. As a result, Barton Malow Company has received the AGC’s Alliant Build America Grand Award, as well as the award for the best design-build project of the year.

DAYTONA Rising is a $400 million reimagining of an American icon – Daytona International Speedway. The project was completed in less than 30 months and allowed for continued race events and visits from 750,000 fans throughout the course of the project. Daytona International Speedway now boasts 101,500, wider and more comfortable seats, twice as many restrooms and three times as many concession stands. In addition, the Speedway features 60 suites, 520 club seats and 2.5 million SF of space and a completely revamped hospitality experience for corporate guests.

“Barton Malow is proud to have served as the construction manager for DAYTONA Rising which now represents the “World Center of Racing” as the first motorsports stadium in the world,” said David Price, Vice President, Barton Malow. “Winning the AGC Alliant Build America Grand Award is a testament to high level of skill, advanced technology and collaboration our team leveraged to successfully build one of the most game-changing projects in the industry.”

The Alliant Build America Awards highlight the nation’s most significant construction projects. A panel of judges, representing all areas of construction, evaluated an impressive number of submissions this year, assessing each project’s complexity, use of innovative construction techniques and client satisfaction, among other criteria.  The awards, which were announced during the association’s annual convention in Las Vegas, are considered by many to be the most prestigious recognition of construction accomplishments in the U.S.
