The Argyros Girl Scout Leadership Center was awarded ASCE-OC’s 2018 Architectural Engineering Project of the Year. The bayfront LEED Silver certified Argyros Girl Scout Leadership Center, designed by Bundy-Finkel Architects, is on the leading edge of recreation and sustainability. Fuscoe Engineering provided civil design for the project, which is located on a tight infill space within Marina Park, a unique public marine recreational facility on 10.5 acres on Balboa Peninsula. The new one-story, 6,100 sf Girl Scout Center has been fully integrated within the Marina Park development and was designed to enhance the surrounding park and adjacent marine environment with beneficial LID features.

“As Orange County’s new hub for Girl Scout STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programs, the Argyros Girl Scout Leadership Center provides girls with a beautifully designed space to have fun while fostering collaboration and exploration,” said Girl Scouts of Orange County CEO Vikki Shepp. “The environmentally friendly design and energy-saving features of the Leadership Center provide tangible opportunities for girls to understand the importance of protecting the environment and ensure that our building remains a sustainable part of the Newport Beach landscape for years to come. Whether they are playing on the beach, kayaking, or roasting s’mores on the patio, we know this space creates lifelong memories for Girl Scouts across Orange County.”

Bauer Architects for Festival of Arts

The Laguna Beach Festival of Arts Grounds was awarded ASCE-OC’s 2018 Historical Renovation Project of the Year. Since 1932, the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts has been an iconic Orange County cultural landmark. The Festival Directors commissioned Bauer Architects with Fuscoe Engineering (civil engineer of record) and Spurlock Poirier (landscape architect) to design a new and inviting facility on the Festival grounds. This exceptional 31,774 sf multi-million-dollar renovation was designed and constructed within an aggressive schedule, in time for the annual art festival.

Habitat for Humanity of Orange County

The ABC Green Home 3.0 Project was awarded ASCE-OC’s 2018 Sustainable Engineering Project of the Year. The ABC Green Home 3.0 is the third prototype of Habit for Humanities’ award-winning ABC (Affordable, Buildable and Certified) Green Home Series, which utilizes collaborative design, planning, engineering and science to create the ideal high performance, sustainable and cost-effective home. A multi-discipline team of professionals, including Habitat for Humanity Orange County, architect Danielian Associates, Inc. and Fuscoe Engineering for civil design, among others, provided services for this highly efficient, Net-Zero Energy, LEED Platinum home constructed for a U.S. Veteran family.
