Usery Hall receives third award

Georgia Military College’s new prep school, Usery Hall, which was constructed by Skanska, has received its third award — this time from the South Atlantic Chapter of Construction Management Association of America. COL John Thornton, GMC Prep School Principal, represented the school during a special ceremony held to recognize outstanding achievement in the practice of construction management. Mr. Matt Jones, Skanska Senior Manager, accepted the 2011 Project Achievement Award for the category of “constructed value greater than $10 million less, than $30 million.” The construction of Usery Hall, named for former U.S. Secretary of Labor and GMC Alumnus, Mr. W. J. Usery, Jr., previously received the Georgia Association of State Facilities Administrators 2010 Innovations Award for New Building Design and Construction in October 2010, and the McGraw-Hill Construction and Southeast Construction Awards Award of Excellence in the K-12 Building Category in December 2010.
