On November 17th, Ballinger had the distinction of winning three AIA Pennsylvania Architectural Excellence Awards: a COTE Award and Merit Award for our work on the University of Michigan’s Kinesiology Building, and an Architecture Honor Award for the University of Rhode Island’s Fascitelli Center for Advanced Engineering.

Senior Principal Terry D. Steelman, FAIA is pleased to have the design of the Fascitelli Center acknowledged by Ballinger’s peers. “This project has been transformational for the URI campus and the College of Engineering, which underscores our design philosophy of creating places that are exceptional and empowering,” he said.

Senior Principal Todd Drake, AIA, who led the design of the Kinesiology Building, described the tension between the adaptive re-use of a foundational building and the intervention of movement, interaction, science, and wellness as key design drivers. “The design elevates awareness about wellness, movement, and the impact of physical and emotional health for everyone in the building,” Todd said.

Ballinger was also recognized as an AIA Pennsylvania EPiC firm for our support of emerging professionals in the field of architecture.

We are elated to celebrate these wins and the wins of our peers: community is the true key to design excellence.
