The $55 million renovation of seven historic residence halls on campus, known as the Quad, was chosen for the prestigious award from among a list of projects that cost more than $20 million. Several aspects of the Quad renovation were singled out for praise by the judges, including its sustainable design and the project’s complexity, said Fred Patrick, director of UNCG facilities, design and construction.

Its impact on the local community and construction industry also received high marks, Patrick said.

This marks the second year in a row a UNCG-related construction project has received the Star Award.
