This year’s finalists for the Springfield Contractors Association Design Team of the Year were tasked with thinking outside the box. From utilizing design to fostering a new way of learning to crafting new headquarters that embrace company brands, these firms stepped up to the challenge.
The finalists are two projects by Buxton Kubik Dodd Design Collective: Volt Credit Union and Zimmerman Corporate LLC, and the Willard Intermediate School-South by Paragon Architecture LLC.
The winner will be announced at the Salute to Design and Construction Awards’ 35th annual banquet on Nov. 7. The annual awards celebrate notable projects, developers and construction leaders.
A 10-person selection committee of industry professionals selected this year’s finalists and winner, said SCA Executive Director Megan Short. Design teams were judged on exterior and interior design, creativity, quality and how the team worked together, she said.
