Institute for Sustainability project honored for design

Rochester Business Journal
August 25, 2014

An area educational facility, and some of the firms that worked on its creation, received national kudos.

The Design-Build Institute of America has recognized the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability project and those involved with the project by giving it a national award of merit for an educational facility.

LeChase Construction Services LLC partnered with SWBR Architecture, Engineering & Landscape Architecture P.C. and FxFowle Architects of New York City on the 84,000-square-foot complex. The $36 million facility serves as a showcase for green construction and design, and an epicenter for sustainability, research, technology transfer, education and outreach.
 
To receive an award, winners not only needed to achieve best value while meeting design and construction quality, budget and schedule goals, but also demonstrate advanced and innovative application of total integrated project delivery—including design-build best practices, officials said.
 
Twenty-five projects in nine categories were awarded National Awards of Merit this year. One project in each of the nine categories will be named as a National Award of Excellence winner in an awards ceremony during DBIA’s Design-Build Conference and Expo Oct. 7 in Dallas. Additionally, three National Awards of Excellence will be given for Design, Process and Teaming, and one project will be honored as Project of the Year.
 
The 2014 DBIA National Award of Merit for an Educational Facility is the third award for the local building.
