ABC Awards

2009 - Excellence in Construction Eagle Award - University of South Florida Marshall Center

Feddon Mechanical LLC (then Alliance Plumbing & Mechanical) was awarded the ABC "Excellence in Construction" Eagle award for our work on the University of South Florida Marshall Center.

2011 - Excellence in Construction Eagle Award - Salvador Dali Museum

Feddon Mechanical LLC was awarded the ABC "Excellence in Construction" Eagle award for our work on the Salvador Dali Museum.

This high profile project is an intregal part of the cultural tourism in St. Petersburg Florida. Former St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker commented: "This extraordinary new museum will be a crown jewel to St. Petersburg's growing cultural renaissance. The building design is an unforgettable work of art." Since opening the first Dali Museum in St. Petersburg in 1982 millions of visitors from around the world have been drawn to a city that had little name recognition among art lovers.

The new $36 million dollar museum is a concrete trapezoid wrapped in an undulating was of glass and steel nicknamed the "Enigma". Its solid structure, with 18 inch thick walls and a 12 inch thick roof can withstand a category 5 hurricane and features amenities including a cafe, theater, classroom, student gallery and library.

Some of the challenges of this project were the limitation of adequate lay down area for on-site material for a job of this size and schedule which required continual deliveries and staging of materials as areas became available for instillation. The  instillation of an underground fuel oil tank and grease trap in close proximity to the water front of Tampa Bay were especially challenging because of the high water table.

2011 - Merit Award - Pinellas County Job Corps

Feddon Mechanical LLC was awarded the ABC "Excellence in Construction" Eagle award for our work on the 

Pinellas County Job Corps.

This was a high profile project that took almost a decade to come to fruition with the United States Department of Labor announcing on April 19th 2003 that Pinellas County would have a Job Corps Center. In October of 2005 Pinellas County   commissioners granted a special designation to a tract of land in midtown, in the former Dome Industrial Park. The 166 acre tract near Tropicana Field would be the home of Pinellas' first Job Corps site. The $60 million dollar 16 acre campus opened in November 2010 with the ability to provide education and job training to low-income 16-24 year olds. The campus can house 300 students and provide the area with 100 permanent staff and faculty jobs once it is fully running.

This project was 166,000 square foot facility consisting of the following 9 buildings: administration and security building, student services and career counseling building, vocational education building, vocational shops building, cafeteria building, two 2-story dormitories, recreation and gymnasium building and a maintenance and operations building.  The project was designed to LEED-NC v2.2 Silver, although did not seek certification. A "Best Value" approach to sustainability was utilized, balancing first costs with long term sustainable benefits. Sustainable strategies include: passive solar design, low-impact site design, energy efficiency and water efficency. Some of the specific measures that were utilized are: natural day-lighting, low wattage light fixtures, occupancy sensors, waterless urinals, tankless water heaters, high performance glazing, energy efficient building envelope, native landscaping recycled content, bio-based and renewable materials and low VOC paints, adhesives and coatings.
