Gibbons Center-Barry Mills Hall Project Among “Best of the Best”By Bowdoin News
The John and Lile Gibbons Center for Arctic Studies and Barry Mills Hall, the two-building mass timber project completed last year, have been named one of 2023’s “Best of the Best Projects” by ENR, a weekly trade magazine covering the construction industry.
“These twenty selected projects reflect excellence in US design and construction for fostering innovation, advancing a culture of safety and bettering communities,” says ENR Editor-in-Chief Scott Blair in an article announcing what the publication calls “the cream of the crop.”
The Gibbons Center-Barry Mills Hall project had been named best project in the higher education/research category in ENR’s October 2023 issue.
The Gibbons-Mills Hall project and the other “best of the best” will be spotlighted in ENR’s March 11, 2024, issue and a gala held in New York City in April to celebrate the winners.
Bowdoin was one of ten institutions to receive funding from the US Forest Service in partnership with the US Endowment for Forestry and Communities, Inc., a nonprofit corporation that works collaboratively with partners in the public and private sectors to advance systemic, transformative and sustainable change for the health and vitality of the nation’s working forests and forest-reliant communities.
