CLEMSON Wind Research Facility, Best Energy Industrial Project in the USA
The Engineering News-Record (ENR) magazine, an international publication reporting on construction industry worldwide, has announced the top winners of the annual competition for the Best of the Best Projects 2014. The award for the best project in the USA within the category of Industry / Energy has been given to CLEMSON University’s SCE&G Energy Innovation Center in North Charleston.
IDOM has been responsible for the Architecture design, complete Engineering and Owner’s Engineering during all phases of the project of this world-class leading research facility that allows the wind industry to conduct tests in a reduced time on the next generation off-shore windturbines.
The SCE&G Energy Innovation Center had previously been winner of the regional Best Projects 2014 competition, after which it moved up to the national contest competing with the other regional winners in the same category. A new national panel of judges then had to distinguish the best project in terms of teamwork, safety, innovation, quality and design functionality.
