EW HAVEN, CT — Pickard Chilton , an award-winning archi- tecture studio announced that its project, 600 Canal Place in Richmond, VA, has received an AIA Connecticut Busi - ness Architecture Excellence Award. Completed in 2020, the 20-story, 1 million gsf 600 Canal Place serves as Domin - ion Energy’s new corporate office tower. It is the third AIA Connecticut Business Archi - tecture award that the firm has garnered for its corporate work in as many years. The jury for this year’s awards program included Mark Creedon, AIA, Per- kins Eastman; Becca Nell, PMP, VVA Project & Cost Managers; and Ron Quic- quaro, AIA, Studio QArchi- tecture . Submissions were limited to architects either practicing or located in Con- necticut. Pickard Chilton will be presented with the award at an in-person awards gala in November. Situated in the heart of Richmond, 600 Canal Place is a high-performance workspace for more than 1,000 profes- sionals, designed to enhance productivity through new ways of working that will ben- efit Dominion Energy employ - ees and customers. According to the jury, 600 Canal Place is “…stunning…all encompass- ing. An impactful and bold site-responsive project that met the goals of the client, adds to the community, and offers high-quality workspace. A one-acre expansive roof gar- den, sculptural interior spaces and sweeping glazed façade all contribute to a richly daylit interior and connection to the cityscape and river.” The building offers dramatic views of the James River and downtown Richmond. Ac - knowledging the city’s histori- cal connection to the James River, 600 Canal’s curved exterior enclosure is inspired by the shape of the full sails of the ships that historically navigated the river. Stainless steel diagonal rods that ar- ticulate the sweeping facades further emphasize the sail metaphor. Culminating in a crisp tower top, the billowing sail of 600 Canal Place reflects the city, river, and sky. The building includes street-level retail, employee amenities, and parking. “As with all our projects, we
