Design II building receives fourth industry award

Design2 building

The School of Architecture and Construction Management’s Design II (I-2) building attracted significant state and national attention in 2011 for the innovative use of brick in its design. Now it has received national recognition for the role that exposed structural steel played in its construction.

Uzun & Case Engineers, LLC, the structural design firm that worked on the SPSU building recently received a National Certificate of Recognition in the American Institute of Steel Construction’s Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel awards program.

Last year, the work done by the architectural firm of Cooper Carry on I-2 earned a Gold Brick award from the national Brick Industry Association and the Brick President’s Award and a Design Merit Award from the Georgia chapter of the American Institute of Architecture.
