The Birmingham Section started 2015 with a political reception at the Murray Building Co. jobsite at the old Merita Bread Bakery. More than 150 members were in attendance with city and state officials. Everyone enjoyed a tour of the site as well as barbecue from Joe McNabb and Hendrix Chevrolet.

Hall of Fame Nominations Due

It is time to nominate candidates for induction into the Alabama Construction Hall of Fame. Material must be to Jennifer Chesnut ( by July 31.

Also, the deadline for the 2015 BuildSouth Competition is Oct. 16.

Please send ACHOF nominations – including the name of the nominee and company and a description of their qualifications not to exceed 250 words – on letterhead to Jennifer by mail (AlabamaAGC/P.O. Box 102066/Irondale, AL 35210) or fax (205) 451-1499). The nomination may include ancillary material such as letters of recommendation, resumes and video.

The ACHOF is open to those who serve or have served the non-residential construction industry in Alabama and the Panhandle of Florida. General contractors, specialty contractors, suppliers, architects and engineers are eligible for induction.

The Alabama AGC established the Alabama Construction Hall of Fame to honor and recognize outstanding individuals in the construction industry. These individuals are held in esteem by their peers and have demonstrated their professionalism through active support of the industry through their civic and community involvement. In short, only those who have literally changed the landscape of our state and nation will be enshrined in the Alabama Construction Hall of Fame.

One must have served the Alabama construction industry – as a general contractor, a specialty contractor or supplier, an architect or an engineer – for at least 25 years to be eligible for the hall of fame.

The BuildSouth competition is open to all general contractors and specialty contractors. Projects which are completed in 2015 are considered for recognition in new construction and renovation in multiple categories.

Projects will be honored at the BuildSouth Awards Banquet, Jan.15, 2015.
