May 2, 2024

Carolinas-based A M King, a leading integrated Design-Build firm with an established presence in the Upstate, was recognized with a 2024 Design-Build Project Team Award during the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) Southeast Region’s Annual Regional Summit & 24th Annual Awards Banquet. A M King was singled out for its exemplary project delivery of ALDI’s Regional Headquarters and Distribution mega-facility in Loxley, AL — winning Bronze in the Industrial and/or Research Facilities category. A M King project team members were on hand to accept the award at the April 23rd event, held at South Carolina’s Kiawah Island Resort.

A M King provided property consulting for repeat client ALDI US, one of America’s fastest-growing retailers, and designed and built their regional flagship facility, which serves 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.

Previously, A M King was honored for this same project by Associated Builders and Contractors of the Carolinas (ABC Carolinas) in that organization’s 2023 Excellence in Construction (EIC) Awards competition. A M King took home a “Best in Class” Eagle Award — ABC’s highest-level award in the Industrial/Over $50 million category; won the exclusive 2023 Carolinas Design-Build Award; and was a Finalist for ABC’s 2023 Project of the Year. Earlier last 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.

“Working together with the entire project team, our experienced design and construction professionals overcame the various project challenges one-by-one, successfully delivering this complex project in keeping with our longtime client’s critical deadline for shipping product,” said A M King President Dan Crist. “Because our company focuses 100 percent on Design-Build delivery, it’s especially rewarding to be recognized by DBIA.”
