Several members of the Donohoe Construction project team attended with guests from PN Hoffman, the owner developer, and SmithGroup JJR, the architecture firm.

According to ABC, “The Excellence in Construction Awards recognizes and celebrates outstanding projects built by Washington-area ABC members annually. The awards competition serves to raise the level of construction standards through the industry by recognizing the workmanship of those who contribute and by showcasing the results of their dedication.”

The project achieved LEED Gold Certification in April, the first of The Wharf parcels to achieve any LEED certification.

The project also won an AIA Award of Merit from AIA Northern Virginia.
