Pinal County, ARCADIS, Swan Architects, and Concord will be presented the state award at the 2014 APWA Arizona Chapter Statewide Conference on July 29 in Oro Valley, Ariz., and the national award at the International Public Works Congress & Exposition in Toronto, Canada, on August 18.

“This project is an true example of honoring Arizona’s history while working collaboratively to create a facility that is sustainable for decades to come,” said Dale Marr, chairman and CEO of Concord General Contracting.

Located in Florence, Ariz., the 1891 Second Pinal County Courthouse was in such disrepair that it was listed on Arizona’s Most Endangered Historic Places prior to the $5.3M renovation. Prior to the renovations the Courthouse had been vacant for several years. Today the facility serves as the offices of the Pinal County Supervisor’s making it one of the oldest and original facilities still in use as a public building.
Other honors this project has received include the Governor’s Heritage Preservation Grand Prize Award, Arizona Forward’s Crescordia Award for Buildings and Structures – Historic Preservation, and the Engineering News-Record (ENR) Southwest Regional Best Government/Public Building.
