Tarlton was honored for their work on Knight Hall and Bauer Hall completed in March 2014. Here is the citation for their award:
Olin School of Business – Washington University in St. Louis was recognized for material management. Team members were Washington University; Tarlton; Moore Ruble Yudell Architects and Planners; Mackey Mitchell Architects; BurroHappold Engineering; William Tao & Associates; KPFF Engineers; and Cole. Switches to precast from poured in place to fight a winter time frame; pre-assembly of the building’s centerpieces – a 90-foot-by-90-foot unsupported skylight— in the fabricator’s yard to avoid on-site glitches; and prefabrication of mechanical systems, saving 90 days out of the schedule allowed the 22-month project to finish on time.
