Award Criteria

  1. Architectural Excellence
    The modular portion of the construction was designed to match the accompanying site built multi-use building. The exterior finishes of cement plaster (stucco), and HardiePanel siding were chosen to maintain consistency. Additionally, all of the custom guardrails and stair systems were fabricated at the Meehleis Modular plant allowing for ease of access and safety while keeping the desired aesthetic. The administration building boasts an expansive glass fascia, wood textures, and clean lines. Creating a stunning focal structure for the campus.
  2. Technical Innovation & Sustainability
    Located just 10 miles from the 6.9 magnitude Loma Prieta earthquake epicenter, Lexington required a hefty, 20 inch thick, slab-on-grade design to acount for the possibility of large scale earthquakes. Additionally our unique sher wall construction and use of sound deadening materials produced quiet classrooms. Receiving a CHPS (Collaberative for High Performance Schools) certification for background noise under 45 dBA.
  3. Cost Effectiveness
    Constructed in our grid neutral facility with a 190kv photovoltaic system, the project shaved off the normal operating costs associated with construction as well as being environmentally conscious. With the site built multi-use building occupying the campus our off-site process allowed all structures to be constructed simultaneously. Reducing not only construction cost versus the site built building but also minimizing the total construction time.
