BRIC Recognized by Historic Preservation Society
In 2014, the Waco Historic Landmark Preservation Commission gave the BRIC an award for "Sustained Excellence of an Adaptive Reuse of a Commercial Structure" in recognition of the BRIC’s commitment to retaining much of the plant's original construction features, including much of the interior structure, the plant's signature water tower, and brick chimney. In addition, the BRIC reception area displays General Tire mementos. In November and December 2012, the BRIC hosted open house events for the former General Tire employees and their families to tour the facility and share memories.
Additionally, in 2014 remodeling contractor, The Beck Group won the Best of Build Outstanding Construction Award for their work on remodeling the BRIC.
