INNOVATOR AWARDS May/June 2018 78 2018 Student Housing Innovator Award Winners Celebrating achievement in on- and off-campus housing, the Innovator Awards go to the best projects and programs each year as voted on by more than 100 industry judges. Compiled by SHB staff On-Campus: Best Use of Green/ Sustainable Construction/Development Tooker House, Arizona State University American Campus Communities Tooker House — an engineering honors college completed in fall 2017 — required sustainable durability to weather Tempe's harsh summer temperatures, which regu- larly surpass 100 degrees. The company conducted feasibility studies to create a self-shading building, and each exposure was studied to determine solutions for the most effective daylight shading based on siting. The community received a LEED Gold certification.
