November 2, 2011 (Raleigh, NC)-- American Builders Quarterly magazine (ABQ) has chosen the Gateway Center at Westchester Community College in Valhalla, New York, as a Project of Distinction in its 2011 Building Excellence Awards.

Umicore Building Products USA (UBP) entered the 70,000-square-foot project in ABQs annual competition since it features extensive use of VMZINC architecture zinc. Umicore, UBPs global parent company, is a world-leading manufacturer of architectural zinc.

Designed by Ennead Architects LLP of New York with Worth Construction as contractor, the Gateway Centers building materials integrate the structure with the existing fabric of the campus and establish a new signature building for the College. Fieldstone at the base of the building resonates with historic buildings on campus, while offices and classrooms, cantilevered over a base of structurally glazed walls, are clad in VMZINC (installed by Barrett Roofing).

We received entries from all over the nation, but [Umicores] stood out as an exemplary work in keeping with the best aesthetic and pragmatic traditions of architecture, engineering, and construction management in the United States, said ABQ features editor Geoff George.

We are honored to receive the American Builders Quarterly award, said Dan Nicely, Director of Market Development UBP.And we are very proud to be associated with such a great project by the very talented designers at Ennead Architects.

The project is featured in ABQs November-December edition.

The Gateway Center also recently received a national award from the Metal Construction Association for the exceptional use of metal in innovative architectural designs.

Now in its fifth year covering America's construction industry, American Builders Quarterly provides an industry-specific look at high-quality companies spanning all aspects of the building trade.
