“It is with great honor that MBP accepts another CMAA Project Achievement Award,” says MBP’s Don Young, PE, CCM, F.SAME, Executive Vice President, PM/CM Practice Leader. “We are extremely proud of this recognition by our peers and of the value that our team, particularly Steve Pancham, Jim Yatzeck, Greg Vuyovich, Thomas Gill, Ali Salim, Taylor White, and Kim Forbes, brought to EVMS for the Waitzer Hall project.”
The Waitzer Hall project included the construction of a new 144,000-gross-square-foot building and a 310-space, above-ground parking garage.
