CHARLOTTE, NC (July 26, 2016) – Batson-Cook Construction is pleased to announce the appointment of Curt Rigney as senior vice president and general manager of its new regional office in Charlotte.
Rigney, a 12-year veteran of Batson-Cook who has worked on several of the firm’s most notable Charlotte projects, including Duke Energy Center, will carry overall responsibility for the successful delivery of all projects managed out of the firm’s local office. At present, Batson-Cook has four projects under way in Charlotte: Museum Tower Apartments and SkyHouse II in Uptown, The Gibson in Plaza Midwood, and The Element South in Ballantyne.
“Curt has been the face of Batson-Cook in Charlotte since we broke ground on Duke Energy Center in 2007,” said Randy Hall, president and CEO of Batson-Cook. “He was the natural choice to lead our new Charlotte office as we expand both our business and community partnerships in the area.”
Rigney brings more than two decades of solid construction experience to his new role. He has managed projects ranging from $3.5 million to $400 million, and his personal career portfolio tops $1.2 billion.
Before accepting the position in Charlotte, Rigney served as senior vice president and manager of Batson-Cook’s private commercial construction operations in Atlanta. In that role, he executed the SkyHouse Program – a $1-billion venture to build 17 luxury high-rise apartment buildings in Charlotte, Raleigh, Nashville, Atlanta, Orlando, Tampa, Austin, Dallas, Houston and Denver within a five-year time-frame. Prior to that, he was senior project manager for Duke Energy Center, which he considers to be his greatest career accomplishment to date.
Mr. Rigney graduated Summa Cum Laude from Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in Building Construction. He is a member of the 2011 Inaugural Class of ENR Southeast's "Top 20 Under 40 Emerging Leaders," and a licensed General Contractor in the State of Georgia. In addition, he sits on the UNCC Childress Klein Center for the Real Estate Advisory Board, and is a member of USGBC of North Carolina.
