was selected due to its land development, revitalization, open space preservation, transportation, design, and process and community im- pact. Associate vice presi- dent for facilities & construc- tion, Jaime Garrido , was very proud of the recognition. “This project was a true com- munity project, as the College partnered with the Schuylkill River Heritage Area and the Pottstown Borough.” The building was an adap- tive reuse project of a former PECO building built in 1911. Phase I of the project dealt with the 3 acre Brownfield site. Phase II of the project, completed in 2011, renovated the infrastructure. Phase III renovated the unused interior portion of the build- ing and a ribbon cutting was celebrated on April 18, 2016. This adaptive reuse proj- ect was a true collaboration between the College and all the Design professionals. The new facility’s design aesthetic maximized the industrial “bones of the building” to keep it’s unique integrity alive. Benedict Dubbs , princi- pal in charge of Murray As- sociates Educational Studio, was very excited to learn of the Award. “It is very grati- fying to transform a classic industrial building into a contemporary educational space. We enjoyed collabo- rating with the College and Pottstown officials to design an exciting, and flexible facil- ity serving the community.” Montgomery County Com- munity College boasts a na- tionally recognized, award- winning faculty committed to working closely together with students in the learning process. n
