Building design receives architectural award

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.   

About Logan Harrison (35 Articles)
My name is Logan Harrison, I am 21 years old. I was born in the great city of Minot, North Dakota. My father had been sent to the Minot Air Force base, where we lived for four years after I was born. In the year 2000, my father was reassigned to the the F.E. Warren Air Force Base where we ended up staying in smelly, outdated air force housing for three or four years until we moved off the base. I attended Anderson Elementary school and then enrolled into the East High system where I attended Carey Jr. High for three years. After graduating from East High in 2014, I received a scholarship to Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington, Wyoming, to compete on the golf team. During my time there we went to back-to-back National Championships and took second in the region my freshman year, and during my sophomore season we won the Region IX title. I always love a good meal with good company, and I enjoy hanging out and talking with friends and family. I will never pass up an opportunity to pet a dog or any pet. This past winter I took a trip to St. Thomas Island in the Virgin Islands where I stayed with a friend of mine and worked as a kayak guide for seven weeks. That whole experience is something I encourage everyone to do. Get out of your comfort zone and explore a new environment, culture, food, and activities. I went kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking almost everyday. The highlight of my time there was scuba diving, swimming with sharks and exploring an old shipwreck. The ocean is surprisingly very peaceful and magical when you finally reach the bottom. The whole experience taught me that life doesn't actually start until you reach the end of your comfort zone.
