Crow receives ABC Excellence in Construction Awards for public works project. 

MORRILTON, AR, March 12, 2021 – Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Arkansas announced that Crow Group’s work on the Delta Heritage Trail project in 2020 has earned the company first place in the Public Works / Environment over $5MM category of ABC’s Excellence in Construction awards competition.  Crow Group will be recognized during a virtual ‘Excellence in Construction’ celebration in April.

Project Manager John Beck and Superintendent Craig Chambers will accept the award for the project.  Crow Group was the general contractor completing a 9.4-mile section of the Delta Heritage Trail development in Southeast Arkansas for the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism. The project was located between Rohwer and Watson, Arkansas and included the construction of two trailheads– grading, drainage, asphalt parking areas and concrete sidewalks and picnic areas, restroom facilities and pavilion; bike and walking trails; and removal of six railroad timber bridges that we replaced with steel truss and concrete bridges. 

“ABC congratulates Crow Group for their outstanding work on the Delta Heritage Trail project,” said Bill Roachell, ABC Arkansas President. “This project is a true example of exceptional craftsmanship and professionalism that defines merit shop construction. It is an honor for the association to recognize this project with our top construction excellence award.” 

Crow President Brian Rohlman, P.E. said, “We are extremely honored to be recognized by ABC Arkansas for our work on this project.  Our roots are in civil construction and although our company has diversified across multiple divisions in recent years, we remain proud of that foundation our success has been built upon.  It’s also an honor to have worked on such a high profile project for the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism.”

ABC Arkansas designed the Excellence in Construction program to recognize excellent performance in the merit shop construction field. The award honors all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and engineer. This year’s competition was open to all construction projects completed by ABC member firms during 2020. The winning projects were selected from entries submitted from across the state and were judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost.  Crow Group is a full-service construction and engineering firm headquartered in Central Arkansas.  Crow provides a diverse range of services to clients across multiple divisions including commercial, industrial, water/wastewater, and heavy civil.
