The heavy lifting required to create a Gold’s Gym from an aging office building earned Consolidated Construction Co, Inc., an Eagle Award from the Associated Builders and Contractors.
The Appleton-based contractor was the only Wisconsin business honored as part of the 2011 National Excellence in Construction competition.
Award presenters praised Consolidated for turning an urban eyesore at 731 N. Water St. into a five-story gym with a pool suspended between two floors and a basketball court that includes a mezzanine for spectating. The building’s age and original structure created unique challenges in the renovations, completed in late 2010.
Gold's Gym Milwaukee opened in January 2011.
