CTA Construction Project Wins Architectural Excellence Award

CTA Construction Managers announced that The Ben Franklin Classical Charter Public School (BFCCPS) was recently recognized by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Central Massachusetts at its AIA CM Awards Celebration.

The school was designed by Arrowstreet Inc. and built by CTA Construction Managers. Larry Spang, lead architect on the project, said, “We are delighted that AIA CM has recognized the school with this award. We appreciated the team at CTA Construction Managers working as partners with us and the rest of the design team to bring this design to life.”

The new 70,000sf school was a major facility upgrade for BFCCPS students and staff, who previously leased a former Catholic school building in Franklin. Just two miles away from its former site, BFCCPS is one of the oldest and best-performing charter school systems in Massachusetts.

“We obviously take a lot of pride in what we build,” said Jeff Hazelwood, principal, CTA Construction Managers. “It is wonderfully gratifying when one of our completed projects is recognized by experts in the field of design and architecture.”

Every year, the AIA celebrates the best in contemporary architecture with the Excellence in Design Award Program. Winning projects highlight the range of outstanding ways well-designed buildings and spaces improve lives and communities.
