The Ark Encounter project will wow and teach visitors about Noah’s Ark.

By Alan Dorich

It’s rare when a construction project has the goal of sending people back in time by thousands of years. But that’s what the Ark Encounter project in Williamstown, Ky., plans to do with presentations of numerous events from the Bible, including a full-size replica of Noah’s Ark.

When finished, the Ark will be the largest timber frame structure in the world, declares Mike Zovath, the project manager and co-founder of Answers in Genesis. The apologetics ministry is serving as the general contractor on the multiphase project alongside The Troyer Group, the construction manager.

Management experts recommend having a succession plan for a business, but the absence of a successor for SETEX Construction Corp. turned it into an opportunity for Nathan Rivers and business partner Bruce Reyes.

“The previous owner had gotten to the point in time where he was ready to retire and was getting ready to close the business,” recalls Rivers, now SETEX’s president, who was working at another construction company at that time. “He had a great reputation and built a great company name. It was a company for which I would like to have my name associated. So we got together, started negotiating and ended up having a transition in 2014.”

Coming soon to Plymouth, Mass., is a newly constructed $90.3 million school – a big budget for a big, 248,000-square-foot high school. Although the size and cost are monumental, the job isn’t too big for Agostini Construction and Bacon Construction, two companies run by one family. Plymouth South High School is a Bacon Agostini Construction joint venture that broke ground in July 2015 and will be completed by May 2017.

Therefore, to provide the best value management for the University of Washington, Skanska USA Building and its prime subcontractors have become involved at the design stage, working closely with Perkins + Will, the architect for the new Life Sciences Building in Seattle, providing valuable input to deliver an accurate budget for the project as it is designed.
