The awards keep coming for the Creighton School of Dentistry. Engineering News-Record (ENR) recently named it the Higher Education/Research Project of the Year for the Midwest region.
RDG Planning and Design, the architect for the Creighton School of Dentistry, submitted the project for the honor. They will officially accept the award on December 3, 2019, at the ENR Midwest Annual Award Breakfast in Chicago, IL.
MCL Construction was the Construction Manager at Risk onthe project that was also honored by the AGC of Nebraska Building Chapter.
"The Creighton School of Dentistry is worth every award it receives," said MCL Construction Senior Vice President Tony Fucinaro who also served as Project Executive.
"The ENR award recognizes the collaborative efforts of Creighton University,Project Advocates, RDG Planning and Design, Alvine Engineering, MCL Construction, and all the subcontractors and subconsultants. The amount of teamwork and near flawless execution of the design and building plan was about as perfect as you can get."
The Creighton School of Dentistry project took less than two years to complete. It officially opened last August allowing
Creighton to expand its incoming class size and provide expanded dental services to the community.
“MCL optimizes the design and execution of infrastructure, envelope, utilities, and finishes for projects of every size and level of complexity. This held true working with them on Creighton University's School of Dentistry," said Benjamin Kroll, a partner at RDG Planning and Design.
ENR Midwest used independent judges to determine the award winners. There were 97 total entries in 20 separate project
categories. Thirty-five total winners were named ranging from Best Project to Award of Merit.
