Christman Receives AGC of Tennessee's Build Knoxville Award for Morristown-Hamblen West Project

KNOXVILLE, TN — The Knoxville branch of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Tennessee has honored The Christman Company with a Build Knoxville Award for the Morristown-Hamblen West project.

Morristown-Hamblen West, an extension of the Covenant Health and Morristown-Hamblen Healthcare System, is a 67,000-square-foot facility featuring an emergency room, diagnostic center, and medical offices. The facility plays a vital role in enhancing health care services in Morristown, Tennessee.

The Build Knoxville Awards highlight the area’s best construction projects. Winning projects are selected based on management, innovation, safety, environmental considerations, client service, and community relations.

“Receiving the Build Knoxville Award is a testament to our team’s dedication and hard work,” said Marty Gibbs, Senior Vice President and General Manager for The Christman Company’s Knoxville operations. “The Morristown-Hamblen West project represents our commitment to excellence and our passion for contributing to the well-being of the communities we serve.”

The project stands out for its successful management of significant geographical and supply chain challenges. The team mitigated 17 sinkholes, managed 45,000 tons of excavated rock, and navigated supply chain disruptions with adaptable strategies to ensure project continuity.
