Glastonbury, CT – S/L/A/M Construction Services was recently honored with a 2014 Project Team Award from the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) New England Region in the Building Construction category for its work on Hoerle Hall at Kent School in Kent.
This is the team’s second award for this project. Associated Builders and Contractors of Connecticut (ABC) honored the team last year with an Excellence in Construction Award and People’s Choice Award.
Despite forces of nature — two lightning strikes, two floods, a hurricane, a blizzard, and the threat of confronting the protected Timber rattle snake — the entire SLAM team, including construction manager, architect, engineer, and subcontractors, continued to work.
The $11.5 million project was both designed and built by The S/L/A/M Collaborative. Hoerle Hall is a new, 35,000sf dormitory and academic building, housing 80 students and five faculty families.
In addition to bright and homey living and community spaces, the Georgian-style building provides studios and classroom space, doubling the space for the art department on campus. A multipurpose room adjoins the art studios, digital imaging lab, and a darkroom at the south end of the lower level. The multipurpose room also provides multimedia capabilities for lectures, seminars, classes, and clubs to gather in an open and flexible space overlooking the club fields.
The winners were announced at the DBIA New England Annual Meeting in Framingham, Massachusetts on Thursday, December 11, 2014.
