A M King Wins ABC’s Best-in-Class Excellence in Construction Award and 2023 Carolinas Design-Build Award for ALDI Project

A M King, a leading Integrated Design-Build firm with an established presence in the Upstate, was recognized by ABC Carolinas this month for its exemplary delivery of ALDI’s Regional Headquarters and Distribution mega-facility in Loxley, AL.

At the 2023 ABC Carolinas Excellence in Construction (EIC) Awards gala held in Charlotte on November 9, A M King was presented with a “Best in Class” Eagle Award – ABC’s highest-level award in the Industrial/Over $50 million category – and was singled out with the exclusive 2023 Carolinas Design-Build Award. Furthermore, A M King was a Finalist for ABC’s 2023 Project of the Year.

A M King provided property consulting for ALDI US, one of America’s fastest-growing retailers, and designed and built their regional flagship facility, which will serve as a blueprint for future ALDI locations as the company expands in the Southeast and across the country. The nearly 600,000-sf Gulf Coast operation services more than 100 stores in southern Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and the Florida panhandle—marking the company’s presence in 38 states.

“I want to congratulate our experienced design and construction professionals for a job well done in delivering this complex project while meeting our longtime client’s critical deadline for shipping product,” said A M King Vice President Dan Crist. “Winning the coveted ABC Eagle Award plus the Carolinas Design-Build Award is extremely rewarding for A M King and the entire Design-Build team.”

Having won at the Carolinas chapter level, A M King became eligible to compete in ABC’s National EIC Awards competition for which winners will be announced in March 2024.

Earlier this year, A M King won an Award of Merit for the ALDI-Loxley project in Engineering News-Record’s (ENR) Best Projects Awards competition for the Southeast region.
