Midwest’s Best of 2010 Harvey Oliva

ENR Midwest held its Best Projects of 2010 awards celebration last month at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel, where more than 150 design and construction professionals joined our publication’s team in saluting the most innovative and challenging projects of the year. Of the 175 construction projects nominated to receive an award in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan and Ohio, our independent panel of judges selected 60 as the winners. Many hard-working people were recognized at the event. Harvey Oliva, senior vice president at Barton Malow Co., Southfield, Mich., happily accepted a Project of the Year award in the health-care category for successfully delivering the Karmanos-Crittenton Cancer Center in Rochester Hills, Mich. Designed by Albert Kahn Associates Inc., Detroit, the building owners wanted “the look of a ski lodge with high-tech components,” said the nomination.

Barton Malow also took home a Project of the Year award in the sports/recreation category with its work on the University of Michigan Football Stadium Renovation & Expansion in Ann Arbor, Mich. And the project was not just a regional champ; it is featured in ENR’s national edition this week as a 2010 Best of the Best winner, too. See Best of the Best profiles in this issue for more information.
