Alvin H. Butz, Inc. Awarded Construction of New Hawk Mountain Amphitheater

Allentown, PA, March 7, 2014 . . . Alvin H. Butz, Inc. was recently awarded the construction of a new amphitheater for Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Kempton, PA. The project will include a new outdoor classroom as well as an extensive ADA trail that leads from the new amphitheater to the existing Visiting Center.

The new construction project is Phase II of Hawk Mountain's "School in the Clouds" Campaign. This portion of work is estimated to cost $2 million for both the walkway and amphitheater, and includes funds for a maintenance endowment.

"We felt that Alvin H. Butz, Inc. was the right construction manager to help us realize the second phase of our four-phase plan to improve Hawk Mountain and better educate the region on the importance of conserving birds of prey," said Jerry Regan, President of Hawk Mountain Sanctuary.

The new amphitheater will comfortably seat 250 people in an attractive setting and will include a covered stage with sound and lighting. Natural materials that blend in seamlessly with the surrounding woods and other "green" features will be used in building the amphitheater.

"We were impressed with Alvin H. Butz and their willingness to protect the natural surrounding and follow guidelines in the Hawk Mountain Land Management Plan," says Regan. "For example, all subcontractors must be trained on environmental sensitivity and extra care will be taken to ensure no native plantings or trees are damaged unnecessarily," he adds.

The project will begin in November 2014 and take an estimated five months to complete, with an expected completion date of Spring 2015, pending funding.

"Alvin H. Butz, Inc. commends Hawk Mountain for their commitment to the conservation of birds of prey," said Greg Butz, President and CEO of Alvin H. Butz, Inc. "I am confident that our project team will be more than up to the task of successfully completing this project to the complete satisfaction of the sanctuary."
