Earlier this spring I blogged about what a great time I had at our ribbon cutting for the newly renovated E. Rivers Elementary School. Mr. Jere Smith, director of Capital Improvements for the district, has informed me that Rivers has earned a “Project Achievement” award and recognition from the South Atlantic Chapter of the Construction Management Association of America for the awesome building design!
The award is the sixth such award by CMAA to APS projects in the past 10 years and represents continuous industry acknowledgement of project achievements in the district’s Capital Improvement Program.
The 98 year-old campus, which is the location of one of the oldest continuously operating schools in the district, is now home to a new facility opened in January 2015 that was part of a $28 million project designed by Collins, Cooper, Carusi, Architects and built by the Parrish Construction Group.
Great work everyone!
