Batson-Cook beefs up Charlotte office


Construction firm Batson-Cook has hired a new executive for its Charlotte office, the company said Wednesday.

David Hamilton is a new project executive in the Charlotte office. He has 27 years of construction experience.

“We are thrilled to welcome David to the Batson-Cook family,” said Randy Hall, the construction management firm, in a statement. “The depth and breadth of his construction experience are unparalleled, and he will be an asset to both Batson-Cook and the Charlotte community.”

Atlanta-based Batson-Cook is busy in Charlotte with four apartment projects: The Museum Tower apartments and second SkyHouse tower in uptown, the Gibson in Plaza Midtown, and the Element in Ballantyne. The company’s past projects have included the Hearst Tower and Duke Energy Center.

“I am eager to help the company expand its impressive portfolio here in Charlotte, where we first began building in 1983,” said Hamilton.
