Hmong American Peace Academy and United Community Center – Ricardo Diaz Early Learning Academy take home awards at the 2022 Mayor's Design Awards ceremony.
The Mayor’s Design Awards are presented in an ongoing effort to recognize design excellence throughout the City of Milwaukee. Projects in the Neighborhood Renaissance category have added value to the city by providing new or improved options for neighborhood housing, or by adding or improving cultural, educational, or other community amenities that strengthen neighborhoods and enhance the quality of life for residents. Along with the many companies and individuals involved in these projects, we are proud to have had the opportunity to be the general contractor on these projects.
