It’s hard to start a new year without taking a look at the year past. 2016 was a year to remember for Bordeaux Construction. The most exciting change was our move from Durham to Raleigh. After calling Durham home for over 35 years, an expansion was needed and we can now be found in the heart of Downtown Raleigh. Durham will always be a part of Bordeaux Construction’s history; however, we are enjoying the change of scenery and the upbeat vibrant atmosphere that comes with a downtown city setting. A new office meant new places to explore and new traditions to develop. It didn’t take long for our office to discover the conveniently located Treat Ice Cream Shop which quickly turned into an almost weekly Thursday afternoon ice cream social. In addition to our move, we have also welcomed several new employees to the Bordeaux Construction Family. Among our new employees include Project Managers, Superintendents, Project Engineers and a Director of Business Development.
Notable projects completed in 2016 include the W. Allen Cobb Judicial Annex, North Brunswick High School Addition, Duke OIT and UNC Aycock Family Medicine Renovations. The W. Allen Cobb Judicial Annex included the removal and replacement of the façade of a five story courthouse annex in downtown Wilmington. North Brunswick High School Addition was completed utilizing the Construction Manager at Risk Delivery method and included a 30,000sf, 2-story addition consisting of 12 classrooms, 4 labs and a chorus room. Duke University OIT is a 2,000sf studio located in the Technology Engagement Center featuring one of the largest openly accessible 3D Printing Facilities in Higher Education. Aycock Family Medicine was a first floor renovation for the University of North Carolina Health System.
We are thankful for such a wonderful year and are excited to see where 2017 brings us. We look forward to continued growth in both our Raleigh and Wilmington offices. Several projects still in the preconstruction phase will break ground later this year including Iredell County Jail Expansion in Statesville, NC, UNC Kenan Lab Renovation in Chapel Hill, NC and Rocky Mount Academy in Rocky Mount, NC.
We wish you all the best in 2017! Feel free to stop by and say hello!
