• Clara Verner Tower

Clara Verner Towner

Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Recipient of AGC Alabama's BuildSouth Award for Renovation Construction Management

Amason served as contractor for this extensive renovation project near The University of Alabama campus in Tuscaloosa. Originally constructed in 1972, Clara Verner Tower is a 13-story retirement community consisting of 145,423 total square-feet. As the building had never previously been renovated, the scope of work for this project was all encompassing and included the complete renovation of 200 apartment units, the common areas, administrative offices, lobby, and library. In addition, we abated asbestos from the building’s exterior and installed a new EIFS skin and roof, which involved coordinating the removal and relocation of rooftop cellular telephone towers. The project also included complete landscaping and hardscaping for the entire facility and construction of new, ADA compliant parking areas. The facility remained at almost full occupancy throughout
this project.
