April 25, 2014

Northridge— The Student Recreation Center at California State University, Northridge, has received a national award for excellence in architecture praising its innovative design. 

The SCUP Excellence Awards, presented jointly by the Society for University Planning (SCUP) and the American Institute of Architects-Committee on Architecture for Education, recognized the Student Recreation Center with its Merit Award – New Building. The award will be handed out during the SCUP Annual International Conference in Pittsburgh, PA this July. 

“It’s an honor for CSUN and the SRC to receive such a coveted award,” said SRC Director, Jimmy Francis. “We are happy to share this important recognition with our general contractor C.W. Driver and the project architects at LPA, Inc.” 

The SCUP Excellence Awards are based on a rigorous competition that considers the scope of the project, design goals and objectives, academic and student life opportunities and constraints, the integrated planning process, implementation strategies, innovation, originality, and how the building program and design met the institution’s vision and mission. 

Previously, the Student Recreation Center has received the AIA San Fernando Valley- Design Award in 2009, and a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Status Certification in 2013.
