St. Stephen’s Episcopal School-Buddy Temple ’60 Dining Hall/Booth Student Center

Location: Austin, Texas
Client: St. Stephen's Episcopal School

The project is centrally located in the heart of the pedestrian-only 60 year-old campus. The buildings are woven into the landscape within inches of large live oaks, settled between the residential end of campus and the main student thoroughfare and drop-off area. The schedule was compressed to meet the needs of the school to be complete by opening day of the 2013-14 academic year. The artistic design, value management process, pre-purchase, and construction phasing and delivery logistics, all helped make the Dining Hall and Student Center project the “crown jewel” of the St. Stephen’s campus. The project received the ABC Excellence in Construction Eagle Award and a 2014 Texas Society of Architects Design Award.
