Evergreen Brick Works was just honoured with a 2013 Congress for New Urbanism (CNU) Charter Award, announced May 29 in Salt Lake City.

ERA has been working on this project for several years with project partners including Evergreen, architectsAlliance, DTAH, Diamond Schmitt, and Claude Cormier + Associés, among others.

Jurors praised the project for its innovative reuse of a challenging historic built fabric. “The project respects the enterprising spirit and built legacy of the original industrial use while responding to environmental considerations and the need for gathering space within the larger community,” according to jury remarks.

Evergreen Brick Works was one of nine international projects given a 2013 Charter Award. The Congress Charter awards are given to projects that respond well to the detailed criteria of the Charter of the New Urbanism.

Thanks very much to the CNU and congrats to all our fellow team members!
