Durability + Design is calling for facility owners, architects, contractors, suppliers and others to enter the Elevation Awards, which will be presented during a ceremony at CONSTRUCT, the CSI Annual Convention, held Sept. 13-16, 2017 in Providence, Rhode Island.

The inaugural awards program will honor projects in both aesthetic and technical categories, ranging from residential exteriors and commercial renovations to floor coatings and air barriers.

Elevation Awards

The Elevation Awards will be judged by 12 experts in the fields of color, design, specifications, renovation, building-envelope technology and others. They will evaluate projects based on their aesthetic merit and technical effect, according to the award categories’ parameters.

Entries for the awards will be accepted until midnight May 1, 2017. For details about how to register, entry forms, judges, fees and honors visit www.durabilityanddesign.com/elevation.

“Through the Elevation Awards program, we want to recognize those who are involved in projects that use coatings to achieve excellence in aesthetic or technical effects, as well as those who demonstrate great skill in executing a painting project,” said D+D Editor Amy Woodall.

Winners will be notified Aug. 1, 2017. Honorees and projects will be featured in Durability + Design’s fall print magazine and online.

Categories and brief descriptions are listed below.

Aesthetics Award Categories

Distinguished Residential Exteriors

This award is given for outstanding achievement in using coatings to achieve aesthetic effects, such as proportion, symmetry, pattern, decoration and integration with the environment, on the exterior of a historic residence or a residential building with a high-impact design.

Public Buildings

This award is given for successful achievement in using coatings and other decorative treatments to give substance and meaning to an important public building, such as a legislative chamber, a school or a railway station.

Commercial Interiors

This award is given for the effective use of coatings and other substrate treatments to enhance the commercial purpose of a building interior.

Curtain Wall

This award is given for the successful use of coatings (or other treatments) to complement the design of a high-rise building facade.

Technical Award Categories

Renovation/Retrofit

This award is given for use of coatings to enhance the appeal of a building renovation or retrofit, in terms of both aesthetics and functional value, such as energy performance.

Floor Coatings + Treatments

This award is given for outstanding achievement in selection and installation of a floor coating or treatment that excels in aesthetic effects, durability and maintainability.

Roof Coatings

The Roof Coatings award will be given to a successful roof coating project that has achieved demonstrable energy savings and life extension of the roofing substrate on a building.

Air Barrier and Moisture Management

This award is given for a liquid-applied air barrier system, including related taping and flashing materials, that excelled in design and installation detailing.

Judges' Choice Award

Drawing from individual category winners, judges will select an overall winner to receive the Judges' Choice Award, which recognizes an outstanding architecture project that best exemplifies the seamless combination of compelling aesthetics and high performance in use of coatings and other substrate treatments.

Expert Judges

The Elevation Awards will be judged by 12 experts in the fields of color, design, specifications, renovation, building-envelope technology and others. In addition, readers will also have the opportunity to weigh in on the finalists as a part of the voting process.
