MacKenzie Contracting Receives NAIOP Maryland Award of Excellence

MacKenzie Contracting Company was recently recognized at NAIOP Maryland’s Bi-Annual Awards of Excellence Gala, receiving the award for Best Interior Rehab for work completed at Baltimore engineering firm RK&K’s new headquarter location in Baltimore City.  The project consisted of a complete renovation and buildout of 116,000 total square feet between two floors located at 200 E. Pratt Street in the heart of downtown Baltimore’s harbor.  Scott Albright, Senior Vice President for MacKenzie Contracting led the project and accepted the award on behalf of his team.

This new location for RK&K represented a consolidation of three of their Baltimore offices into one, providing the opportunity to bring everyone together again and positioning the firm conveniently to their workforce.  MacKenzie Contracting collaborated for two years with RK&K to complete the renovation which included numerous high-end finishes, some of which required special engineering components; a concrete reception area, a rebar wall, guardrails at the staircase, and gabion baskets in the lobby.  Having a tight schedule for completion, work had to be organized precisely between multiple schedules of parties involved; that of the tenant that was vacating, and leasing constraints from RK&K’s multiple city locations that were to be vacated.

“A demanding and at times daunting project, we are honored to have had the opportunity to work with RK&K throughout their headquarter renovation,” stated Albright.  “The finished product truly stands out from traditional office interiors while complementing the RK&K brand and vision.  We wish them many successes in their space for years to come.”
