Mountain States Construction magazine recently announced that the Park City High School renovation project received a K-12 Education Project Merit Award in its annual “Best of” competition. An independent jury of industry experts judged nearly 110 nominated projects earlier this week. The jury awarded projects based on their complexity, innovation, quality, contribution to the community and aesthetics.

The three year, $30.8 million project replaced an aging, inefficient, outdated facility with a facility that supports a beautiful, functional, and efficient teaching environment. Park City High School is the first comprehensive high school in Utah built to environmentally sensitive LEED Silver Certification standards.

The high school also received a 2009 Honorable Mention in the Education Design Showcase sponsored by School Planning & Management magazine.

LEARNING BY DESIGN, a magazine recognizing the nation’s best firms by publishing outstanding pre-K to 12 and college/university projects awarded the school an Honorable Mention in its awards edition.

The school was also a 2009 finalist for the prestigious James D. MacConnell Award presented by the Council of Educational Facility Planners International.
