JSNN building receives construction award
May 14, 2012
The building of the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering has been honored with the Star Award as 2012′s most outstanding new construction project in North Carolina.
The award is presented annually by the Construction Professionals Network of North Carolina. The JSNN building won in the over $20 million category. The other category, under $20 million, also was won by a Greensboro project, the International Civil Rights Center and Museum.
Projects are selected on their merits and challenges. Criteria include the project’s outcome, overall project management, quality management, cost management, schedule management, project complexity, and innovation and creativity.
The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering is a collaboration between North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University and the The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. N.C. A&T faculty members in the Department of Nanoengineering and affiliated faculty members from many departments across campus conduct research and work with graduate students at the school.
JSNN builds on the strengths of the two universities in the basic sciences and in engineering to offer an innovative, cross-disciplinary research and academic program that leads to M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in nanoengineering awarded by N.C. A&T and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in nanoscience awarded by UNCG.
