Salt Lake City-based Jacobsen Construction recently took home distinguished honors for its work in the Beehive State.

The AGC of Utah named the local contractor the Utah Division of Facilities Construction and Management (DFCM) Contractor of the Year in recognition of the firm's work in the public sector.

The award presenters described Jacobsen's project teams as "advocates," "problem solvers" and "team players" who go "above and beyond" in their work and demonstrate "great communication."

"Jacobsen Construction [project teams have] proven to be champions of the state standards and advocates for their clients," the presentation said. "They understand the need for — and benefit of — building cohesive project teams, which lead to best results for all parties. They manage project costs and schedules with excellent accuracy. Their management of unforeseen and unknown conditions results in little to no impact to project schedules or budgets. Overall, Jacobsen's teams make projects successful from all points of view."

Awards for Projects

Three projects completed by Jacobsen within the last year also received distinguished industry recognition from the AGC of Utah.

The winning Jacobsen projects are the Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center in the Cultural category, the Architectural Nexus Office Remodel in the Green Building category and the University of Utah NBICU Ronald McDonald Family Space in the Health Care category.

"There is a strong demand in our community for high-quality performing arts space," said Doug Carley, Jacobsen Construction's project manager overseeing the work at the site. "This venue will enrich people's quality of life for many decades to come."
