Cooper & Company is excited to announce the firm is a 2022 winner of the AGC Build Georgia Awards.

The Associated General Contractors of Georgia notified winners of its annual contest earlier this month. Cooper & Company received first-place for its Gwinnett County Public Library-Norcross Branch project completed in October of 2021.

Cooper & Company Principals Steve and Jim Cooper said they were honored to receive these accolades from AGC.

“It was our privilege to be able to provide Gwinnett County and the City of Norcross a space that is beautiful, highly-functional and offers so many resources to the community,” Steve said.

“A library is so much more than a place that houses books—it is a space for learning, creating and building relationships just for starters,” Jim said. “We are very proud to have been part of this project and to receive this award.”

The newly constructed library branch is a LEED Certified facility and was built over a parking garage. The interior has numerous open spaces with specialty rooms for adult readings, meetings, children’s area and teen gaming rooms. Features also include an elevated plaza area adjacent to the library including decorative planters and hardscapes. It was designed by Chad Smith of CAS Architecture. “It is always a pleasure to work with Chad and his team at CAS Architecture as well as Gwinnett County,” Jim said.

AGC’s Build Georgia Awards represent the best the construction industry has to offer by both general contractors and specialty contractors. The awards will be presented at the association’s annual convention June 10 in Sandestin, Florida. For more information on AGC and Build Georgia, please visit:
