DALLAS— It has been described as “green” because of its environmentally sound features. In fact, few buildings in Dallas can boast that they’re constructed in large part from recycled materials and that the roof only has to be mowed once a year.

Now, the energy-saving features and overall construction of the second building at the new University of North Texas at Dallas, the city’s first public university, are being recognized with the first place ribbon in this year’s Associated General Contractors Texas Building Branch’s Outstanding Construction Awards.

The award from ACG is in the category of buildings costing between $30-75 million. The $43 million, 102,000-square-foot building on the university’s 264 acre campus was built by Beck with the Warrior Group.

Constructed in less than one year, the building was necessary for UNT Dallas to begin operating as the 38th university in the State of Texas. UNT Dallas opened Sept. 1, 2010.
