Photo of Tall Hall Chosen as ‘2017 Year in Construction’ Winner

Sunrise behind the metal frame of Tall Hall

A photo of Belmont’s recently topped Tall Hall has been chosen as a winner of Engineering News-Record’s “2017 Year in Construction” photo contest.

Rick Smith, the artist behind the photo, was hired by R.C. Mathews, Belmont’s contractor for Tall Hall. “The morning was very foggy,” Smith said about the photo, “and since the project was already topped out and on top of a hill, it made for a surreal effect of being above the clouds. The Sunrise gave great opportunities for a silhouette of the worker in the distance.”

ENR’s annual “The Year in Construction” photo contest accepts submissions¬† of construction photos taken anywhere in the world.¬†Belmont’s Tall Hall has joined the ranks of winners from across the United States as well as Denmark, Belgium and Qatar. All of the winners are featured in ENR and published in a 2017 ENR Photo Contest Winners Gallery.
