On Wednesday, Berglund, alongside Perkins-Eastman, accepted the ENR Regional Best Projects awards for our work on the Physics Research Center, completed last year. Berglund and Perkins-Eastman worked as General Contractor and Architect for the LASR project or The Phyiscs Research Center and The University of Chicago. The project was awarded a Higher Education/Research and Safety Award of Merit by the Engineering News-Record. The magazine provides engineering and construction news, analysis, commentary and data.
The Physics Research Center renovation and expansion allowed the University of Chicago to co-locate physicists and theorists within a scientific and educational environment. A careful balance of private offices, lab space and collaboration areas provide a welcome atmosphere for The University of Chicago's important research and learning. Berglund provided both preconstruction and construction services for this project.
Congratulations to the team on these fantastic awards!
In attendance from Berglund was Anthony Rosignolo, JoAnna Baum, Malcolm Joseph, Kelsea Nolot, Jacob Patz and Ben Alverth.
