Brensinger wins 2013 Clinton Sheerr Award for Excellence
BEDFORD - Barry Brensinger, partner of Lavallee Brensinger Architects, won the 2013 Clinton Sheerr Award for Excellence in New Hampshire Architecture at the American Institute of Architects New Hampshire chapter awards ceremony Friday at the Bedford Village Inn.
Brensinger joined Lavallee Brensinger Architects in 1978 and became a partner in 1980. His passion for design and his firm's commitment to design excellence has been recognized by the 23 AIANH design awards Lavallee Brensinger has received over the past 29 years, the AIA said in a news release. Major designs include the Verizon Center, Manchester City Hall Plaza, the Manchester Airport Terminal, Christa McAuliffe Planetarium, St. Joseph Hospital in Nashua and the new Manchester Department of Public Works Administrative Building.
In the late 1980s, Brensinger led his firm to add health-care design as a core practice area. The company currently has health-care projects in all seven Northeast states.
The award is named for the late Clinton Sheerr, who was noted for designing award-winning New Hampshire buildings, including the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and St. Paul's Church.
