At the 2017 Southeast Region Federal Construction, Infrastructure & Environmental Summit on Wednesday, Smith Anderson received the Award for Excellence and Innovation in Federal Construction, Infrastructure, Environmental and Energy Programs. The award recognizes exceptional service, meritorious achievement and conspicuous innovation in the federal construction, infrastructure, energy and environmental marketplace. Jackson Moore, Pete Marino, David Hayden and Andrew Atkins accepted the award on behalf of Smith Anderson.
“We are honored to receive the Award for Excellence and Innovation for our work in government contracting and construction,” said Gerald Roach, Smith Anderson’s Managing Partner. “The award is a testament to our clients as we work side by side with them in some of the largest and most complex federal and state construction infrastructure projects in the Southeast.”
Smith Anderson has extensive depth and experience in government contracts formation and administration, compliance requirements, and dispute resolution for a range of government contracts, including federal military and nonmilitary and state, local and public construction. Additionally, the firm regularly counsels clients on their teaming agreements, including joint ventures and subcontracts; federal assistance grants; cooperative agreements; and collaborative research and development agreements.
Hosted this year by the offices of Senator Richard Burr and Senator Thom Tillis and the North Carolina Military Business Center in Wilmington, the Summit is considered the premier federal construction event in the Southeast. Partner Jackson Moore was one of several participants in a special session on technical and legal small business issues.
The Summit brings together more than 700 representatives of the Corps of Engineers, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Fort Bragg, Marine Corps Installations East, Seymour Johnson AFB, other Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps installations, US Coast Guard, Department of Veterans Affairs, General Services Administration, other federal agencies, general and specialty contractors, designers and construction suppliers from throughout the Southeast.
