M.E. Rinker, Sr. School of Construction Management

ABC Project of the Year

Rinker graduates continue to find success in the construction industry! Two graduates of the Rinker School of Construction Management have been awarded Project of the Year from the Associated Builders & Contractors, Inc. (ABC) for the recent renovation of the Stephen C. O’Connell Center and the new Exactech Arena. The O’Connell Center renovation was completed by Brasfield and Gorrie led by Erik Sharpe (Rinker ’95), Vice President and Division Manager, and Steven Nickels (Rinker ’11), Project Manager. Both Erik and Steven continue to be involved with the Rinker School. Erik serves as a member of Executive Committee and Steven returns every year to give guest lectures and arranges site tours for our students. Congratulations Erik and Steven and the entire Brasfield and Gorrie team!
