(September 14, 2015) - Six projects from HDR's design studio in Omaha, Neb., were honored with Excellence in Design awards at the AIA Nebraska awards ceremony on September 10, 2015, held in conjunction with the chapter's annual conference. Projects are judged based on a variety of features, including unique design, originality, extended use attributes, sustainability, budget and use of environmental surroundings.

"It's an honor for us to be recognized with six awards among the volume of excellent work being produced in the state of Nebraska," commented Mike Hamilton, AIA, design principal in the Omaha office. "It's a testament to the creative work and culture of our design studio."

The Marjorie K. Daugherty Conservatory at Lauritzen Gardens received an Honor Award in Architecture, the New Parkland Hospital received a Merit Award in Architecture, and Art Works at the Joslyn Art Museum received on Honor Award in Interior Architecture.  In addition, HDR's Ross Miller, Associate AIA, received two awards for emerging architects in the Architectural Detail category.
