The Rhode Island chapter of the American Institute of Architects awarded the Fascitelli Center for Advanced Engineering a Design Honor Award in the Commercial Architecture: Higher Education category.

The AIA Rhode Island Design Awards recognize achievements in design within the state and honor the project teams and the clients who help to create and enhance the built environment.

The five-story building was planned, designed, and engineered by Ballinger and serves as a bridge between the sciences and humanities precincts of the campus. The interdisciplinary hub helps attract the best faculty, students, and industry partners to the University of Rhode Island.
