The Laramie County Community College Flex Tech building was awarded the Grand Prize Award by CTA Architects Engineers for its design.
The building was awarded for its excellence in educational facility design and for having attributes that are worthy of imitation. The CTA Architects Engineers awarded the building based on six attributes: innovation, community need, interior design, sustainability, functional design and 21st century learning.
The building houses multiple tech programs for the college and was constructed to help the current and future industrial workforce needs of Laramie County and surrounding areas. The unique design of the building allows for better flexibility, energy efficiency, student interactions and helps students properly demonstrate their skills.
“Although this is an architectural award, it’s also a good indication of the quality education environment we are creating at LCCC,” said Dr. Joe Shaffer, LCCC President.
