Enter NCBC 2010 Awards of Excellence by Aug. 31
Weaver Auditorium at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences earned Project of the Year honors for the Straub Construction Company in the NCBC Awards of Excellence last year.
Entries for the National Commercial Builders Council (NCBC) 2010 Awards of Excellence program recognizing the best in light commercial construction are due by Aug. 31.
The program recognizes achievements for design, market appeal, overall aesthetics, the challenges faced during building and overall success of projects that are either built or renovated.
The awards program is open to architects, builders, contractors, designers, developers, engineers, owners and others who want to highlight their projects.
NCBC sponsors the Awards of Excellence program to bring recognition to commercial building projects that range in size from less than 5,000 to more than 100,000 square feet.
Projects must have been completed after Dec. 31, 2006 and may be entered in commercial, industrial, institutional, medical, mixed-use commercial/retail, recreational, retail and green building categories.
"Our Awards of Excellence is an effective way to showcase your work to others in the industry and receive peer recognition, which you can use for marketing your business capabilities,” said Carl Harris, of the Carl Harris Company, Wichita, Kan. and NCBC vice chair. “In today’s complex market, being recognized in a special way for meeting and exceeding project goals — while adhering to new, green building standards and other regulations — will make you stand out.”
Last year, 21 projects were honored. All are listed on the NCBC Channel on the NAHB Web site.
Applicants can enter one or more projects in the competition. Projects may be submitted by the builder, developer, architect or contractor of the project.
The six divisions in which a project can be entered include:
- Small-scale projects less than 5,000 square feet
- Projects 5,001 to 10,000 square feet
- Projects 10,001 to 40,000 square feet
- Projects 40,001 to 75,000 square feet
- Projects 75,001 to 100,000 square feet
- Projects more than 100,000 square feet
A panel of building industry professionals will consider entrants for Project of the Year, Grand, Merit, Honorable Mention and Chairman’s awards in all categories.
Winners will be notified by mail no later than Nov. 1 and featured in Commercial Builder Online Magazine.
