For centuries, copper has been used on buildings not only for its beauty, but its durability, versatility and longevity. Now in its 10th year, the North American Copper in Architecture (NACIA) awards program is accepting submissions for innovative and unique copper or copper alloy building projects in the U.S. and Canada. Architects and sheet metal contractors can submit their projects for the 2017 awards campaign through the end of January.
The Copper Development Association (CDA), in collaboration with the Canadian Copper & Brass Development Association (CCBDA) , is proud to recognize projects in the categories of Restoration/Renovation, New Construction and Ornamental Applications. Over the years, award-winning copper projects have come in the form of new and restored government buildings, educational facilities, museums, libraries, firehouses, single-family homes and places of worship.
With 2017 marking the program’s 10th anniversary, the copper industry is seeking the public’s help in selecting the top 10 projects from the last decade. Participate by voting for your favorite copper projects.
To celebrate the milestone, the top 10 copper projects, along with the 2017 award winners, will also be announced in April at the NACIA awards ceremony in Orlando.
