Pima Community College’s Northwest Campus was honored with inclusion in the American School & University’s 2014 Architectural Portfolio.
In April 2014, the new building opened its doors with 49,000 square-feet of space for the expansion of Pima’s science and occupational programs, which is a rapidly growing area for the northwest Pima County area.
The honored building was designed by BWS Architects of Tucson and chosen by a jury from the American Institute of Architect’s Committee on Architecture for Education, along with administrators.
The jury assessed submissions from a variety of architectural firms and universities around the U.S.
Pima’s Vice-Chancellor for Facilities, Bill Ward, said in a recent press release, “This award reflects the hard work and cooperation between Facilities Operations and Construction, Northwest Campus Project Team, BWS Architects and Lang Wyatt Construction in planning, designing and constructing this state-of-the-art teaching facility.”
More information about Pima’s honored building and other selected architecture honored projects can be found in the November 2014 edition of American School & University magazine.
