Tocci Project Wins Architectural Record Award
Architectural Record announced its’ BusinessWeek/Architectural Record Award 2009 winners this week and Tocci is proud to announce that our Autodesk AEC Headquarters project was one of the top 8 winners. It is yet another honor for our Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) project which is receiving much national acclaim from all corners of the AECO industry.
Here is what Architectural Record had to say about the awards:
“There may be signs that the slumped economy is perking up, but many companies are still struggling. In times like these, it’s critical that we champion design and illustrate its value, and the recipients of the 12th annual BusinessWeek/Architectural Record Awards do just that. From a hospital in southern Ontario to a park in downtown Houston, this year’s eight winners and four finalists — all projects completed within the past four years — reveal that architecture is more than a grand gesture. A well-designed space can help a company increase revenue, decrease operational costs, and boost employee morale, among other benefits. Judging by this year’s entries, clients are getting the message. Our jury of editors evaluated an exceptionally competitive pool of nearly 100 submissions from around the globe. Selecting the winners was tough. In the end, we chose a diverse group of inspired projects that clearly demonstrate that good design is a wise investment. As the economy starts to recover, many are questioning what architecture will look like in a post-recession world. The work featured here — projects that put business goals first — might offer some clues.”
