The Jackson High School project was recognized May 19 during the Commission’s 38th annual ceremony held at Morehouse College’s Ray Charles Performing Arts Center.  The school facility and campus recently underwent an extensive multi-million dollar redesign, renovation, expansion and modernization. The $48.2M project that opened in January 2014 was designed by Perkins + Will, Architects and built by Winter Construction Company.

The Commission membership includes two architects, as well as a landscape architect, lawyer, land developer, real estate professional, historic preservationist, artist, historian, neighborhood representative, and urban planner. The annual awards are in recognition of excellence in innovative design and quality construction of building and land development projects across the City of Atlanta.

The award was among several recognitions presented to projects citywide in 2015 by the Commission and represents the seventh award that APS’ capital improvement projects have received since 2004.
