The honor was announced on Wednesday when ENR, one of the construction
industry's top publications, released the companies selected by an
industry panel of judges in each of its 18 award categories. The Fourth
District Court of Appeal project won in the Government/Public Building
category.

"This is a great honor, not just for The Weitz Company but also the
State of Florida and every company we partnered with to build what is
now an award-winning project," said Dennis Gallagher, executive vice
president and general manager of The Weitz Company.

Completed in December 2017, the new Fourth District Court of Appeal
courthouse totals 43,711 square feet and features one main courtroom and
14 judicial offices. The three-story building includes a secure lobby
with bullet resistant glass and a metal detector system; extensive
mahogany-stained millwork; and an enclosed rooftop courtyard. There is
an adjacent four-story, 334-stall parking garage with secure entry/exit
for judicial staff.

The project team overcame challenges, utilized innovative construction
techniques and finished the job safely – all of which were key criteria
in ENR's regional best project awards competition. ENR will recognize
The Weitz Company and the other winners from the Southeast region (which
covers Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and
Tennessee) at an awards luncheon on November 1 in Orlando, Fla.

Weitz served as the construction manager on the project. It was designed
by KBJ Architects of Jacksonville, Fla.
