Harry H. Edwards Industry Advancement Award


Performing Arts Center At Murphysboro High School has received a special award: Harry H. Edwards Industry Advancement Award by Precast / Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI). This award has highlighted the special features of this project as one of the first and largest to use the Graphic Concrete technology in the US.  

The forest pattern, one of Graphic Concrete’s well-known own patterns, spans 1850 m2 (19,880 ft²) of insulated composite precast concrete sandwich panels.  A tree pattern was selected for specific and strategic reasons. The lead design architect on the project wanted to bring the tree-lined roadways that come into the school onto the auditorium to try and continue that “park” like feel to the new building.
