Shockey Receives Award from Associated Builders & Contractors of Metro DC

Each year, the Metro Washington and Virginia Chapters of ABC recognize and celebrate outstanding projects built by Washington-area ABC members. The awards competition serves to raise the level of construction standards throughout the industry by recognizing the workmanship of those who contribute and by showcasing the results of their dedication.

Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. is pleased to announce that Tuscarora High School in Loudoun County, VA won the Excellence in Construction Award for the Education: Public & Private Schools category.

Tuscarora High School is located on a 135-acre site in Leesburg, Virginia. The campus was built in the shortest time frame ever allowed by the Loudoun County school system for a building of its size and scope — a total of 17 months for the actual construction of the project.

The 280,000 SF building is comprised of a two-story steel frame structure and a one-story load bearing CMU structure. A traditional delivery method of design-bid-build was used.

The $60 million new high school accommodates 1,800 students. It includes a two-story area with classrooms, labs, gymnasiums, auditorium, health sciences wing and an art and music wing. The project also includes a full athletic complex with a 4,000-seat stadium, baseball and softball competition level fields and ancillary support spaces.

The project is also the recipient of:

  • 2010 Project Leadership Silver Award from the Construction Owners Association of America
  • 2010 Environmental Preservation Award from Loudoun County, Virginia
