California State University, East Bay Warren Hall Replacement Building.
Sundt was well-represented when industry honors in Arizona and California were awarded in July.
The list includes two of the Engineering-News Record’s California Best Projects 2016: Best Project in Southern California for California State University, Channel Islands Sierra Hall and an Award of Merit in Northern California for California State University, East Bay Warren Hall Replacement Building. A panel of industry judges reviewed 90 projects from California and Hawaii in the competition.
The American Institute of Architects California Council presented its Merit Award for the John M. Roll United States Courthouse in Yuma, Arizona. The award is based on design excellence, and 21 winners from among 250 entries were chosen. We worked with Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects on the project.
The Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute recognized our joint-venture team for work on the San Diego International Airport Rental Car Center, the largest concrete building in the city. The CRSI Honors program has recognized excellence in the design and construction of concrete buildings and bridges for more than 40 years.
Also in San Diego, the local chapter of the American Society of Professional Estimators named us the 2016 Member Firm of the Year. The honor is given to the firm that best embodies “outstanding achievement in recognition for continuing service and dedication in fulfilling the mission and fundamental purposes of the organization.” Senior Estimator Paul Chang has provided leadership to the organization by serving on the chapter board of directors for several years.

With the goal of encouraging greater diversity in our industry, Sundt supported and participated in the Greater Phoenix Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction’s 5th Annual Red Rose Bowling Tournament this month at Kyrene Lanes in Chandler, Arizona.
The annual tournament brings together general contractors, subcontractors, vendors and supporters to raise money for the Lodine Robinson Endowment Fund, a scholarship program for women seeking certifications and degrees in construction-related pursuits in Arizona secondary education.
This was the third year Sundt took part in the event, with sponsorships from the Legal Department and Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Tom Case. Our team, called the Sundt Legal Pin Heads, featured staff from Legal and the Building Division.
Melanie Healey from our Total Rewards team will serve as NAWIC’s President next year.

- A main entry, cafeteria and support departments on the first floor.
- Diagnostic imaging, diagnostic cardiology, cardiac cath labs and interventional radiology on the second floor.
- Operating rooms and patient prep/recovery space on the third floor.
