Solano building wins award

By From page A1 | April 10, 2014

VACAVILLE — Solano County’s William J. Carroll Government Center in Vacaville has been honored by the California Counties Architects and Engineers Association for its design.

The $19 million building won the Public Projects of the Year and People’s Choice Award. The Carroll Center opened in September 2012 to house county health and social services and other programs for the north county.

Solano County is one of three counties in the state to receive the awards. California has 58 counties. The association used an eight-step evaluation process, including value and cost savings, community and employee enhancement, aesthetics, sustainability, innovation, creative funding and public-private partnerships.

“This project represents the best that public sector architects and project managers do every day for their communities,” said Rob Unholz, President of the California Counties Architects and Engineers Association, in a county press release. “We are delighted to bestow this award in recognition of their efforts.”

The William J. Carroll Center is located at 1119 E. Monte Vista Ave.
