SWBR Architects is pleased to announce that Peckham Hall at Nazareth College has received two local awards, a Rochester Chapter Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) Outstanding Project Award and a Rochester Chapter American Institute of Architects Merit Award.

The CSI chapter award is given for exceptional teamwork between owner, designer and constructor realized through the CSI’s principles of how clear, well-prepared construction documents can positively influence the process, quality and successful outcome of a project. The AIA Merit Award recognizes design excellence in architectural design, while creating awareness of the built environment and honors the architect, owner and builder of significant projects.

Peckham Hall, a $30 million, 74,000-square-foot building, opened in September of 2012. It features 20 labs and six classrooms that provide space for math and science students and the growing number of students majoring in health and human service programs.

The SWBR team was recognized at local meetings this spring to accept both awards.
