The Copper Development Association (CDA), in collaboration with the Canadian Copper & Brass Development Association (CCBDA), is seeking nominations for the 2011 awards program.
If you have worked on a construction project in the United States or Canada recently using architectural copper, your firm may be eligible for a 2011 North American Copper in Architecture (NACIA) award.
Projects are being honoured under the categories of Restoration and New Construction. The goal of the awards program is to recognize and promote the innovative use of copper and copper alloys in the design of residential and commercial building projects throughout the United States and Canada.
Some of the projects that were recognized in the 2010 awards program included Old City Hall in Toronto, Ontario; Coweta County Courthouse in Newnan, Georgia; Benning Library in Washington, DC; and the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Charleston, South Carolina.
An entry form and guidelines can be found at www.copper.org/applications/architecture/awards/submit.html. The submission deadline is January 31, 2011.
