Statesboro-based Dabbs Williams General Contractors is honored to receive the Associated General Contractors (AGC) 2011 Build Georgia Award. The firm was nominated for its work on the Ellis Square Redevelopment Project in historic downtown Savannah, Georgia.

A crowning achievement for the City of Savannah, the 53,000 square foot Ellis Square Redevelopment started construction in April of 2009 and was opened to the public in March of 2010. Following the city’s completion of an 1100 space underground parking deck and the Avia Hotel, Dabbs-Williams General Contractors was awarded the contract to construct the final and most visible public design feature for this project, the park and facilities on top of the parking garage.  An interactive fountain was designed that featured multiple computer programming options for water and light shows which provide a refreshing oasis during Savannahs warm summer days.

 “Dabbs Williams is humbled to be acknowledged by our peers in receiving this prestigious award for the construction of the Ellis Square Redevelopment,” said Brad Williams, vice president of Dabbs Williams. “We want to acknowledge the Mayor Otis Johnson, The City of Savannah and all of the collaborators for making the Ellis Square Redevelopment a success.”
