Scott Slagle, AIA, NCARB, accepted the Design Award for Hereford Community Center. The new community center is a multipurpose event facility. The center houses a banquet hall, ballroom, conference rooms, outdoor event courtyard, warming kitchen, and catering kitchen. The new facility is capable of hosting multiple types and sizes of events ranging from family gatherings to light-scale trade conventions with 1,000 people or more.
Paul Hare, AIA, & Nichole Carroway, AIA, accepted the Design Award for Borger ISD High School Renovations. With the passage of the 2017 School Bond, many new improvements were planned for the high school campus. The project included site work, interior renovations of corridors, classrooms, restrooms, administration areas, and creating a 9th Grade Center.
Kim Hooker, AIA, LEED AP, RAS, accepted a Design Certificate of Merit for Midland College June & Frank Cowden Dining Hall Addition. The 18,600 square-foot project replaced the Jack Brown Dining Hall and increased seating from 300 to 474. The project suites the modern southwest style of the rest of the campus and includes a commercial kitchen to support daily dining and campus catering.
Brian Griggs, AIA, accepted a Design Certificate of Merit for Southern Methodist University Hughes-Trigg Student Center. The student center is SMU’s primary integrated student life, student organization, and food service facility in the heart of their Dallas Campus. The project included updated finishes, conversion of existing space into the third food service vendor and a flexible dining and gathering space, and redesign of student affairs office suites. The project was scheduled in two phases for efficient completion and to keep the center open during construction.
