Arlington, VA, November 2015 — SIGAL Construction Corporation celebrated at this year’s Best of NAIOP Northern Virginia Awards Gala as the NVCC Higher Education Center received a 2015 Award of Excellence. The project was recognized in the Build-to-Suit Institutional Facility Under $20 Million category at the event held on November 19th at The Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner.
The Higher Education Center (HEC) at NVCC Loudoun Campus is a new state-of-the-art facility that will help the campus continue its expansion and transformation into a progressive education campus. The building is a three-story steel frame structure featuring a glass curtainwall. The remaining façade is brick and stone veneer with metal wall panels. A cantilevered second floor dramatically extends over the campus pond. The Higher Education Center is designed to engage the students academically, technologically and socially. The academic facility houses classrooms, labs, common areas, a multi-purpose room, and office space as well as a sound isolated recording studio with control room. Advanced telecommunications capabilities help to facilitate the connection between NVCC and its partner universities.
Construction of the project included temporary, partial drainage of the pond for building footings, retaining walls, landscape and hardscape improvements. Building systems included an 80 well geothermal field and other energy conserving systems. The construction team worked closely with the College to minimize the construction presence on the occupied and active campus.
SIGAL congratulates the entire project team which includes owner Virginia Community College System and architect Perkins Eastman.
