We are delighted to announce that Bristol Community College John J. Sbrega Health and Science Building was named a Top Ten Project by the American Institute of Architects Committee on the Environment (AIA COTE). The annual awards are the profession’s longest-running and best known recognition program for sustainable design excellence. As the first building of its kind in the Northeast, the Sbrega Building accommodates energy-intensive health and science instructional spaces in a zero net energy (ZNE) building.
"Alongside our colleagues at BR+A, we are honored to receive
this national recognition from the COTE program and its distinguished jury for
our work in integrated and sustainable design,” said Sasaki principal Fiske Crowell, FAIA, LEED AP. “The true success found in the design of the Sbrega Building and this award relates
to the engagement and participation of the full campus community in extending
Bristol's vision of a sustainable campus. This
project was not just about a new building, but rather about how a building can
help represent and champion the culture of an institution that has made
sustainability a top priority.
