On Friday June 8th, the Orlando Business Journal held their annual awards luncheon for the 2018 Fast 50 honorees. President, Joe Hurt, accepted the award on behalf of RLH. This event showcases the top 50 privately owned companies across Central Florida ranked by percentage of growth over three years. RLH had 182.81% growth!
At long last, the companies that landed a spot on the Orlando Business Journal’s Fast 50 list discovered their place in the lineup. The countdown of companies took place at the OBJ’s award luncheon celebration today.
RLH came in as #17 on the list.
Conspicuously, several construction-related businesses were awarded this afternoon, a positive indicator for the industry.

Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) has awarded RLH Construction an Eagle Award in the Commercial ($5 to $10 million) Category of its annual Excellence in Construction competition. The 30,000-square-foot Aristocrat Volkswagen East project is the 2nd design-build VW “White-Frame” prototype in the United States. The entire 11-acre site was previously wetlands. Once mitigated, a 1,500-lineal-foot segmented block retaining wall was installed with heights varying from six to ten feet. 56,000 cubic yards of import fill (approx. 2,889 dump trucks) was placed. A naturally-occurring stream was routed underneath the site and conveyed through two 60” RCP. Meeting the stringent specifications of VW North America, this project was delivered in nine months, on time and under budget.
The Excellence in Construction Awards program recognizes the exceptional work for an entire construction project for general contractors. Projects are judged on execution of design, quality of craftsmanship, attention to detail, proper installation, outstanding coordination efforts, challenges successfully overcome, project complexity, custom materials, safety program, and owner satisfaction. The Eagle Award is the Central Florida Chapter’s highest recognition.
