CHARLOTTE, NC (August 2, 2016) – Batson-Cook Construction is pleased to announce that David Hamilton has joined the firm as project executive for its new regional office in Charlotte. Hamilton, who brings 27 years of construction experience to his new post, will be responsible for representing Batson-Cook through strategic community involvement, developing relationships with industry stakeholders, helping the company build a strong team in Charlotte, and executing assigned pursuits and projects from concept through completion.
“We are thrilled to welcome David to the Batson-Cook family,” said Randy Hall, president and CEO of the construction management firm. “The depth and breadth of his construction experience are unparalleled, and he will be an asset to both Batson-Cook and the Charlotte community.”
Hamilton holds two bachelor of science degrees – one in civil engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, and the other in math and business administration from Milligan College in Tennessee. Prior to joining Batson-Cook, his career had been spent with a single general contracting firm.
“Even as a competitor, I acknowledged Batson-Cook’s exceptional reputation and performance,” Hamilton said. “I am eager to help the company expand its impressive portfolio here in Charlotte, where we first began building in 1983.”
Several of the iconic buildings Batson-Cook has constructed in Charlotte since the early 1980s now define the city’s distinctive skyline, including the Hilton Hotel, Hearst Tower, and Duke Energy Center. The company currently has four projects under construction: Museum Tower Apartments and SkyHouse II in Uptown, The Gibson in Plaza Midtown, and The Element South in Ballantyne.
Hamilton and his wife, Denise, have two grown children. They are new residents of Charlotte and, by extension, new Carolina Panthers fans. He is an avid Georgia Tech and Atlanta Braves fan, and enjoys golf and physical fitness.
