Star Building Systems Awards National Master Builder Recognition to Dewitt Tilton Group, a Savannah Commercial Construction Company

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Dewitt Tilton Group, a Savannah-based commercial construction company, has been recognized by Star Building Systems with a 2016 Master Builder Award for its Preciball building project. The 40,000-square-foot facility in Pooler, Ga., is the North American distribution center for Preciball, the world leader in the manufacture and supply of industrial ball-bearing products.

“We are pleased to be recognized as a Master Builder by Star Building Systems for our work,” said Chris Tilton, president and co-founder of Dewitt Tilton Group. “It is a great honor to be acknowledged by an industry partner which is so highly regarded for quality products, construction and relationships.”

Dewitt Tilton Group’s winning design for the Preciball building features exposed ductwork and a spiral staircase leading to the second floor to give the feel of a New York City industrial loft. Other key elements include high-efficiency warehouse lighting and HVAC equipment, as well as dock-high loading doors and dock levelers. The warehouse space also features wide clear-span construction.

Oklahoma-based Star Building System’s Master Builder Awards Program is designed to recognize member builders for excellence in design and construction and to encourage professionalism in the building industry. Dewitt Tilton Group received the Best of the District Award for the Mid-South District at Star’s 2017 National Meeting.

The competition included approximately 100 entries in 40 award categories with buildings judged on the attractiveness of the exterior, skill of construction and the effective use of products and components.
