“In recent years, HGC has staffed up accordingly to handle a project of this size,” HGC President Adam Kuehne told the Courier. “This is a game-changer type project for HGC. We’ve worked long and hard to win a project like this and all that hard work is paying off.”

The project’s size and location in Norwood positions it to change the neighborhood in positive ways. HGC’s experience with the tight-knit community of Avondale prepared them well for this work.

Our firm has unparalleled knowledge of the U.S. Playing Card site. HGC worked on this project in an informal capacity for more than ten years. Our estimators dedicated months of preconstruction time to running the numbers and determining the cost of renovating all original structures. Their expert knowledge helped to shape PLK’s vision and the program as it exists in its current iteration: a balance of the preservation of key structures with modern new constructions. HGC personnel have a profound understanding of the building’s history and current conditions.
