$35 million, 107,000 sf project is the first higher education building to earn LEED Gold in Wisconsin
The Richard and Margot Warch Campus Center at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wis., has won many national, regional and sustainable design honors for KSS Architects in Princeton, N.J., and associate architect Uihlein-Wilson Architects in Milwaukee.
In March, the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) awarded the Warch Center its 2010 Facility Design Award of Excellence. The national award recognizes student-centered buildings that support the campus community and student learning.
“It was an incredible honor when ACUI recognized our project,” said KSS partner Pamela Rew, AIA. “The submission required both the designer’s and user’s perspectives, and we were thrilled to re-engage with a client we consider a great friend. It was particularly rewarding to have the university accept the award with us. The award is about more than design: It shows us that our client loves their building.”
