Tufts School of Dental Medicine’s newly expanded building, which was dedicated last fall, has received another nod of recognition: a Best Practice Award from the Boston chapter of the International Facilities Management Association.

The $68 million construction project added five floors to the 10-story building at One Kneeland Street in Boston, and was designed by ARC/Architectural Resources Cambridge and built by Shawmut Design and Construction.

Earlier this year, the vertical expansion project received LEED Silver Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council in recognition of its sustainable design; a Building of America award, which recognizes the country’s most innovative and challenging construction projects; and the Boston Society of Architects Honor Award for Healthcare Facilities Design.
