Concrete Kudos for OCC
The newest building on the Grace College campus, the Orthopaedic Capital Center (OCC), has received the 2007 Excellence in Masonry Award from the Indiana Concrete Masonry Association. Particularly noted were several design features involving the use of masonry in the exterior and interior of the building. The selection was made by a jury comprised of three architects.
The OCC, completed in May 2007, is a 56,000-square-foot facility on the Winona Lake, Ind. campus which is the home of Grace College athletics, chapel, and the school’s Business Department. The facility was built in partnership with local orthopaedic companies and provides a major event center for the college and community.
