Three Centerbrook Projects Recognized

CENTERBROOK, Conn. -- A high school STEAM building, a biosciences research laboratory, and a medical treatment facility, all designed by Centerbrook, received awards recently.

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Connecticut Chapter gave an Honor Award to the Bellas Dixon Math and Science Center at the Berkshire School in Massachusetts. The LEED Gold Center features six math classrooms, eight science classroom labs, a 100-seat teaching auditorium, department offices, and two advanced math/science labs equipped with state-of-the-art research tools.

The International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories gave The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine its Project Award, which recognizes sustainable laboratory and other high-technology facilities that incorporate energy-efficient and environmentally-sustainable approaches, systems, and products. Opened last fall, the LEED Gold facility in Farmington Connecticut combines inviting collegial space with efficient laboratories, while using a variety of energy conservation measures to maximize building performance. It was designed by Centerbrook in collaboration with Tsoi/Kobus & Associates of Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The Connecticut Green Building Council has given its Institutional Award of Merit to the UConn Health Outpatient Pavilion in Farmington, Connecticut. Centerbrook joined with HDR Architects of Princeton, New Jersey, to design the new eight-story facility, which can serve 4,000 visitors daily, both patients and their family members. Slated for LEED Silver, the project included a 1,500-space parking garage plus 10 acres of site development.
