Becker Morgan Group Receives AIA Honor Award

Becker Morgan Group is pleased to announce the new James M. Bennett High School in Salisbury, MD received a 2012 Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Chesapeake Bay Chapter. The awards program recognizes distinguished architectural achievements while honoring the architects, clients, and consultants who work together to improve the built environment and shape quality of life through design excellence. Winners were recognized at the recent AIA Chesapeake Bay Design Awards Gala held at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in Stevensville, MD.


The new James M. Bennett High School is the result of a collaborative design process, providing a technology rich, environmentally friendly school. The site planning required the phased construction of the new building adjacent to the occupied existing high school which was demolished following completion of the new facility. Sustainable design elements begin with the buildings orientation and include the largest geo-thermal HVAC system on the Eastern Shore, daylight harvesting utilizing high performance glazing with automatic window blinds, and light control monitors. The awards jury commented the project has, “A sophisticated aesthetic using a select but strong palette of materials … a great plan organization with clear circulation.”

Becker Morgan Group provides Architecture, Civil Engineering, Surveying, and Interior Design services. The firm has offices in Maryland, Delaware, and North Carolina. For more information, please visit
