Carson City builder claims two Summit Awards
Shaheen Beauchamp Builders LLC claimed two Summit Awards at the 12th Annual Summit Awards Kentucky Derby Run for the Roses themed event held at Rancharrah in Reno on May 6.
“We are honored to have been chosen for two of our outstanding projects in 2016,” Jeff Shaheen, co-owner of Shaheen Beauchamp, said. “Each of these projects contribute in special ways to the community they inhabit.”
The company received the 2016 Top Industrial Development Award for the renovation of Carson City’s largest employer, ClickBond, Inc.’s, Building 51. Originally serving as the company’s original manufacturing shop, Building 51’s renovation included a unique ground source high efficiency heating and cooling system, Carson City’s first non-geothermal ground source system, designed especially for use of available groundwater on Click Bond’s campus.
“Miles of pipes and 75 wells dug 250-300 feet down under the tarmac of the Carson City airport circulate water kept a fairly constant 70 degrees underground throughout the building’s HVAC system, no gas is used in the building, and all lighting is high efficiency LED, significantly adding to the building’s energy efficiency,” Shaheen said. “Specially designed ducting was built into the arching support beams in the conference space, reflecting the sleek interior of an aircraft and the company’s contribution to the aerospace industry.”
Shaheen Beauchamp also captured the 2016 Public Use Project of the Year for the construction of the William N. Pennington Teen Center on the campus of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada in Carson City.
Shaheen said the 6,500-square foot center replaced the Clubs’ previous Teen Center space of less than 600 square feet, enabling the organization to serve a greater number of teens. Membership doubled in the month following the Center’s grand opening and has more than doubled since.
“The best thing about the Teen Center is Teen Club members worked with the project design team to provide user input to the design and construction,” Shaheen said. “The Teen Center was built onto the original Club, where exposed beams and materials bear marks from the original club construction, a big hit with club members, who value the authentic look and feel.”
The Summit Awards are sponsored by the Nevada Builders Alliance, the Northern Nevada chapters of Certified Commercial Investment Member Institute, Commercial Real Estate Women, NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association and SJS Commercial Real Estate.
