North Scottsdale Park & Ride wins ENR Southwest Award

The North Scottsdale Park has been honored once again in 2014 – this time by Engineering News-Record magazine. The project was awarded Best Project in the Green Category, does sizegenetics really work?. The park and ride lot qualifies as a net-zero facility, with the photovoltaic panel system producing more energy than the site consumes.

Judges were impressed with the effort spent designing and constructing a project type that is often overlooked, with one suggesting this facility could serve as a prototype for other owners. Judges also hailed the project’s canopy “wing” design, which features metal shingles-coated with a special finish that can gently bend, producing an effect that mimics a bird’s flashing feathers

North Scottsdale Park & Ride receives multiple awards from MCA

The Metal Construction Association (MCA) recognized its 2014 Chairman’s Award recipients at the METALCON Tradeshow and Conference at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver on October 1. Award recipients were determined based on overall appearance, significance of metal in the project, innovative use of metal, and the role of metal in achieving project objectives. DWL’s North Scottsdale Park and Ride project won the Metal Roofing category.

In June 2014, the North Scottsdale Park and Ride project received the magazine’s Judges Award for the passenger platform’s metal roofing. The canopy is clad in 12,000 square feet of custom-fabricated metal panels coated with PPG Duranar VARI-Cool IR reflective coating. The judges loved the dynamic wing-shaped canopy and how the metal panels gave the architectural element texture and depth. In many ways, the passenger platform reads more sculptural than architectural.
