Stantec receives top honors for Cleveland Institute of Art; Cleveland Hilton Hotel

Program honors design & construction of significant projects in Greater Cleveland

For the second year, Stantec Architecture has received the Cleveland Engineering Society’s (CES) Award of Excellence in Design and Construction, a leading peer reviewed competition of significant new projects in the Greater Cleveland area. Two of the four finalists for the new construction, large project award, were designed by the global design firm: the Cleveland Institute of Art’s George Gund Building and the Cleveland Hilton Hotel, tied for first place honors for new buildings with construction costs greater than $20 million.

The Cleveland Engineering Society’s 2017 awards were announced at the organization’s annual conference in March. Awards are given in five categories, including new construction, renovation, and infrastructure. Last year Cleveland State University (CSU) Center for Innovation in Medical Professions, also designed by Stantec, with Pelli, Clarke, Pelli Architects, was the winner in the large project/new construction category.

Stantec served as designer and architect of record for the Cleveland Institute of Art, with Panzica Construction, and as architect of record for the Hilton Cleveland Downtown, a design-build project in collaboration with Turner Construction. Cooper Carry from Atlanta served as the criteria design architect and Anderson Miller from Detroit as the criteria interior designer.

The Award of Excellence is among the premier recognitions for members of the architectural, engineering, and construction communities in Cleveland. The unique award honors the three primary members of a building team: owners, designers and constructors, and recognizes outstanding team achievement and innovative use of technology.

Michael Carter, AIA, LEED AP, the project executive for both the Cleveland Institute of Art (CIA) building, and the CSU’s Center for Medical Professions, observes: “It’s an honor to see the teams recognized for their contributions to this great city. The buildings start with visionary clients and a shared commitment to design, and build, with communities in mind.”

The CIA’s campus unification program involved a historic tax credit renovation of the 100 + year old McCullough Building, a former Ford Motor Company Motel T assembly plant designed by Albert Kahn and construction of a new building, connected by a soaring three-story atrium. The 250,000-square-foot building brings together teaching studios, classrooms, galleries, auditorium space, and offices in a setting that inspires and motivates. Among its key features: a towering external stainless steel media mesh to display vibrant graphic messaging—the first such installation in Ohio—and the 300-seat, Perter B. Lewis Theatre, home to one of the country’s top repertory movie theatres, the Cleveland Cinematheque.
