SMALL BUDGET, BIG IMPACT: PROJECTS UNDER $3,000,000

Completed between September 1, 2012 and September 1, 2017. This category is intended to recognize the important work done on California school projects with limited budgets. The category is not limited, but must be a stand alone project and not a part of a larger project; some ideas for submission may be:

  • Outdoor Learning Environments
  • Transformation of an Interior Space
  • Welcoming Entry Features

NEW SITE, EXISTING SITE, OR DISTRICT-WIDE MASTER PLANNING

Projects “on-the-boards” since September 1, 2012 and not completed as of September 1, 2017.

 

This category recognizes master planning projects for entirely new school sites and re-master planning existing school sites, including updating or rearranging existing spaces due to district or community changes (including surrounding land use, enrollment, mission, property ownership, and/or partnerships). District-wide planning for an entire geographic or functional area of a district can also be included. These include plans for components of a district such as joint-use facilities, athletic and recreational areas, transportation logistics, funding, and community context. It could also be an historic preservation plan for a campus precinct that has undergone restoration, renovation or adaptive re-use due to obsolescence, deterioration over time, or deferred maintenance, separate from the master plan.

Criteria

The award criteria reflect the mission and values of CASH / AIACC.

Design

Community Environment

Physical Environment
