Some exciting news from the architects of our Lytle Junior High, Lytle Elementary, Athletic Fieldhouse and Ag Barn projects:
SHW Group submitted the Lytle Junior High project to the San Antonio Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). There was a total of 88 submissions and 15 projects were given Citation Awards. Of the 15 projects recognized, only 2 educational project won awards- one being Lytle Junior High. The other educational project was a University of Texas at Austin project in the $75 million dollar range. A comment one of the reviewers made was that as they looked at the different criteria the projects were to be judged on – “Lytle Junior High kept rising to the top as more than meeting each and every facet of a project they were to look at.” This is actually the first project our SA office of SHW Group has submitted to the AIA, so we were quite proud. Educational projects typically do not win AIA awards.
