In April the Salt Lake Community College Westpointe Career & Technical Education Center earned a 2019 BEST (Brilliantly Executed Spaces & Thinking) Award in the “Learn” category for the IIDA Intermountain chapter.
Completed in 2017, the 121,000sf state-of-the-art technical education facility provides hands-on learning opportunities for students pursuing careers in local trades including welding, machining and diesel technology. The facility is defined with abundant daylighting, clean air, and energy and water efficiency, with a theme of transparency and dynamic supergraphics putting training on display to inspire students. The project was singled out for its visual presentation of the building’s systems. “The systems of the building are used to visually tell a story, sometimes in a very colorful way,” commented the IIDA judges. “Graphics, art and finishes are incorporated purposefully.”
SRG was the design architect on the project, working in collaboration with local architects AJC Architects. IIDA Best Awards winners can be found Here.
