UConn Gant Science Complex’s Project Team Receives Award of Merit

Our core focus is to help create the safest, healthiest and most energy-efficient buildings. When we have the opportunity to collaborate with the building’s end-user, design-engineer and construction team we consider it a home run! Such was the case with the University of Connecticut’s Gant Science Complex project. We’re happy to announce it was selected by the Connecticut Building Congress for an award of merit in the category of Higher Education (large)!

The Gant Science Complex project transformed a tired and underutilized 1970’s brutalist building into a vibrant, flexible hub of teaching, research, and collaboration. Renovating a 290,000sf, 50-year-old science building, while occupied, is a massive and complex undertaking. Through three phases of construction, two additions, and six enabling projects, the comprehensive collaboration between the team of 25 consultants, 52 subcontractors, and the core team members from the University of Connecticut’s Planning, Design and Construction group, Goody Clancy, Mitchell Giurgola and Whiting Turner was constant throughout its nearly decade long transformation and has been the lynchpin of the project’s success.
