It’s beautiful. It’s environmentally friendly. Students, faculty and staff love it. It is Clark College at Columbia Tech Center, the college’s newest teaching facility, and it just earned a Community Pride Design award.
The awards were presented on Nov. 13 in the Clark County Public Service Center in downtown Vancouver. President Bob Knight and Project Manager Jim Green were on hand to accept the award, along with Casey Wyckoff and Keith Livie of the LSW Architects design team.
Ten regional projects earned 2009 Community Pride Design Awards and two received honorable mentions.
This is Clark’s fourth Community Pride Design Award. The college was previously honored for the Penguin Union Building, Gaiser Hall renovation and Clark College at WSU Vancouver.
The Community Pride Design Awards program was established in 1996 by various local public and private organizations as a way to recognize buildings, development and civic improvements that have had a positive impact on the community. According to organizers, the program “honors developers, builders and the community for helping make Clark County a great place to live and work, both now and in the future.”
