IMEG-designed high school receives ACEC National Recognition Award

The new Verona High School in Verona, Wis., received a National Recognition Award in the American Council of Engineering Companies’ (ACEC) 2022 Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) competition. The award was presented at the awards gala in Washington, D.C., on May 24.  

IMEG provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, technology, and security design, as well as construction administration services for the high school, which offers houses an animal science lab, greenhouse, culinary kitchen classrooms, performing arts center, visual arts suite, athletic fieldhouse, eight-lane swimming pool, outdoor learning environments, and a football stadium.  

The building’s sustainability features include a ground source geothermal system with a bore field located under the parking lot, energy recovery, demand control for ventilation, LED luminaires, and natural daylighting for instructional spaces.
