AISC presented members of the project team of the Nu Skin Innovation Center, Provo, Utah, with the 2016 IDEAS2 Award for excellence in steel-frame building design during ceremonies held at the center last Thursday. The 170,000-sq.-ft facility houses research laboratories, conference spaces, two cafés, a retail storefront, a fitness center, three floors of executive offices and a data center in a series of elegant, light-filled spaces that reflect the aspirational qualities of the Nu Skin brand and its line of anti-aging products.

“The design is sleek and the cantilevered conference rooms are wonderful,” commented Paula Pritchard, a partner, construction manager and vice president of Plant Construction, San Francisco, and the general contractor juror in the competition.
