LAVC's Student Union Building Wins Award from ENR California

LAVC's Student Union Building Wins Award from ENR California

Engineering News-Record (ENR) California awarded LAVC's Student Union with an "Award of Merit - Southern California" in the category of Higher Education/Research category at the ENR California Best Project 2016 Awards.

The Student Union (which received the award under its construction project name of Monarch Center) was designed by LPA, Inc. and built by McCarthy Building Construction. It features a multi-level design that incorporates a skybox and high canopy architectural elements. The student-center building is home to the college's bookstore, business office, cafeteria, a coffee bar, student health center, and student life office. 

The award winners for ENR California's Best Projects 2016 was selected by a panel of industry judges—including architects, engineers, contractors, public and private owners, and subcontractors. The judges panel reviewed and discussed more than 90 projects located throughout California and Hawaii. Projects were evaluated on the ability of the project team to overcome challenges, its contribution to the industry and community, its safety and construction and the design quality.

The awards were presented at two regional awards presentations; one award presentation took place in Los Angeles on October 4, and the other in San Francisco on December 6.
