Utah Construction & Design recently announced its annual Most Outstanding Projects awards. Big-D’s Salt Lake Community College Westpointe Workforce Training & Education Center won Most Outstanding Large Higher Education project.
Designed by ajc architects, the Westpointe Workforce Training & Education Center provides 121,000 square feet of classroom and workspace for programs such as advanced composites, welding fabrication, solar energy, diesel mechanics, and commercial driver licensing. Funding for the project was approved by the Utah Legislature. The new building also includes 34 labs and a 3-acre diesel truck driving range. The $31 million project commenced in the summer of 2016 and the first cohort of students started this fall.
A panel of 7 industry professionals evaluated submissions for Most Outstanding Projects. This year, more than 100 submissions were reviewed. Big-D’s team for the Westpointe Training & Education Center will formally accept its award during a breakfast banquet in December.
