DateApril 29, 2013
HOUSTON – Bay-IBI Group Architects has won two architecture awards from The Council of Educational Facility Planners International (CEFPI) Southern Region Conference.
The new science facility at San Jacinto College’s Central campus in suburban Houston received the top CEFPI Southern Region “Ed Sevcik Architecture Award,” and will be sent to represent CEFPI Southern Region at the International Architectural Awards.
“Bay-IBI had a great opportunity to help San Jacinto College take their science facilities to the next level,” said Robert Trabanino, design architect for Bay-IBI Group.
“One of the main reasons this project was so successful was the desire on the College’s part to work as a team member,” he added, “and to have a state-of-the-art facility that would respond to today’s modern students by including the colorful open areas, multiple spaces for collaboration, and an abundance of natural daylight and technology throughout the facility.”
Also honoured at the CEFPI conference was a Bay-IBI Group middle-school project for Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District. David Anthony Middle School received one of the two Architecture Merit Awards at the conference.
