Hughes-Trigg Student Center Renovation Project Receives CMAA Project Achievement Award

Last fall, students celebrated the opening of the renovated Hughes Trigg Student Center for its refreshed look, study nooks, and new food offerings–now, SMU and Hill & Wilkinson General Contractors celebrate the construction project for receiving the North Texas Chapter of the CMAA’s (Construction Management Association of America) Project Achievement Award. 

The 7th Annual Construction Management Project Achievement Awards program recognizes outstanding achievement in the practice of construction management. According to the CMAA’s website, “The awards program is designed to recognize and promote professionalism and excellence in the management of the construction process.”

Awards were presented to Texas-based construction management practitioners with projects, programs, or program phases that achieved substantial, final, or a major phase completion during January 2019–January 2021. Hill & Wilkinson submitted Phases 1 and 2 of the Hughes Trigg Student Center renovation, earning the Project Achievement Award for buildings in the $15M – $25M category.
