Forrester Celebrates National Award And New Contracts
Rockville-based Forrester Construction is celebrating a national award for excellence in construction, as well as several big new contracts.
Forrester's work on the chancery for the United Arab Emirates (above) recently earned the company the Excellence in Construction Pyramid Award from Associated Builders and Contractors.
“From start to finish, Forrester’s team demonstrated a commitment to innovation and high-quality construction in their work on the UAE Chancery renovation and expansion,” said 2016 ABC National Chair David Chapin.
The award will come as good news for Morocco, for which the company is working on another chancery. The 50k SF development will arrive in October, in the District’s Van Ness neighborhood on International Circle’s last open lot. The entire building will feature Moroccan-inspired design elements, from the stone facade to the interior finishes.
Forrester also recently signed with Kensington Senior Development to construct a new assisted living community on 700 West Broad St NW, in Falls Church, VA (rendered here). The five-story, 101k SF development—dubbed The Kensington Falls Church —will include a parking garage, as well as apartment-style residential suites and common areas. Construction will finish later this year.
The company will deliver another facility for seniors, the 100k SF Dulles South Multi-Purpose Facility, in South Riding, VA, but this one—equipped with amenities like an indoor track, climbing walls, a weight room and a cardio area—will also serve as a community center for the area.
