The list includes the new Boys & Girls Club, 1330 52nd St.; Indian Trail High School and Academy, 6800 60th St.; the University of Wisconsin-Parkside’s Rita Tallent Picken Regional Center for Arts and Humanities, on the campus at 900 Wood Road; and St. Catherine’s Medical Center Campus’s vertical expansion, 9555 76th St., Pleasant Prairie.

The Daily Reporter, which highlighted the projects, said in a statement that it based its selections on a number of criteria, including a commitment to sustainable construction, positive impacts on the surrounding area, and innovation, among other things.

The Boys & Girls Club was an $8.8 million project that spans 79,500 square feet. It includes a gym large enough for two full-size basketball courts; a full-size indoor soccer field; a teen center with a theater, table games and a computer and study room; and offices for the Kenosha Community Health Center, the Spanish Center, UW-Parkside, the Kenosha Unified School District and the Kenosha Police Department. Camosy Construction was the contractor and Kueny Architects was the architect.

Indian Trail High School and Academy underwent a $50 million expansion that included the addition of an auditorium, a fieldhouse, a cafeteria, music rooms, tech education rooms, art and business rooms and other spaces. The project added 250,000 square feet to the original 159,000 square feet, and better situated the school for the four academy programs it houses — biotechnology, business, communications and military training — as well as being a comprehensive high school. The general contractor was Camosy Construction, and Bray Associates was the architect.

At St. Catherine’s Medical Center, 322,000 square feet were added in three stories to include expanded emergency and urgent care departments, five new operating rooms, a new child-birth services department, a women’s health and obstetrics unit, 24 new patient rooms, a third-floor shell for future development, a maintenance garage and other facilities. Riley Construction was the contractor for the $60 million, phased, nearly three-year project. Welman Architects was the architect.

UW-Parkside’s new arts center, dubbed “The Rita,” is a 107,000-square-foot renovation of its Communication Arts building, with the addition of 72,000 square feet of new space, at a total cost of $34 million. The project includes a concert hall, ensemble rooms, music studios, a music library and rehearsal spaces, among other things. Miron Construction was the contractor. Hammel, Green And Abrahamson Inc. was the lead architect.
