Congratulations to Franklin & Marshall
Congratulations to Poole Anderson Construction and our client – Franklin & Marshall College – for winning the highest award for Project of the Year Eagle award from the ABC Keystone1 on November 4, 2021.
This is awarded to new building construction with “wow factor” thus explaining why they received it for their Winter Visual Arts Center which opened in 2020. It was designed by Steven Holl Architects and has been described as if “it landed from outer space.”
We were thrilled to provide the civil engineering for this special project and believe the building and grounds will serve the staff and students of F&M for decades to come!
This is the 2nd award for F&M for this $30.4 million project. On October 26, 2020, it was selected as Project of the Year Finalist and Best Project for Higher Education and Research by ENR MidAtlantic2 – an Engineering News-Record publication.
