Frisco Independent School District’s $33-million Career and Technical Education, CTE, Center, which opened in September 2008, won a 2009 Terrazzo Honor Award from the National Terrazzo and Mosaic Association.
One of 14 winners, the annual awards program honors the best terrazzo installations completed within the calendar year and are judged on excellence in craftsmanship, originality of ideas, intricacy of design, artistic and faithful reproduction of the design drawings, scope of work, and quality of construction materials. Plano-based SHW Group served as the project architect. Cadence McShane’s Dallas office served as the construction manager.
The 125,618-sq-ft center is a facility where college-bound and career-bound 11th- and 12th-grade students engage in a cross-collaborative experience that merges real-world professional environments with educational programs.
