HAMMOND, Louisiana – (December 3, 2010) At an awards luncheon held at Boudreaux’s in Baton Rouge yesterday, representatives from Stirling Properties, Richard Price Contracting Co., LLC and Duplantis Design Group accepted an award on behalf of Hammond Square. The Power-lifestyle center received Louisiana’s Best of 2010 award of merit in the civil construction category.
Awards were given by McGraw Hill Construction Company and South Central Construction magazine for construction and design excellence. An independent jury of industry experts awarded projects based on safety, innovation, craftsmanship, and contribution to the community or industry by project type.
Hammond Square, originally developed as a 430,000 SF enclosed Mall, was redeveloped by Stirling Properties in 2006 at the request of Palace Properties, LLC, the property’s owner, and the City of Hammond. Site work was completed in 2009 by Richard Price Contracting Co., LLC who was the general contractor for the project and Duplantis Design Group who was the civil engineer. Together, all teams worked to create over 650,000 SF of retail and restaurant space that challenged them to breathe new life into an ailing property.
The success of Hammond Square is noted in the December/January issue of South Central Construction Magazine’s “Best of 2010” where a complete list of Louisiana award winners is featured.
