The EIFS Council of Canada is proud to announce the 2018-2019 Architectural Design Awards to honour design professionals and firms which incorporate EIFS products into innovative and creative built projects. The goal of this Award is to create a new benchmark in EIFS construction.
The Awards Program is open to all architects, architectural firms, builders or design professionals that have designed and completed a building located in Canada which utilizes EIFS.
All Award recipients will be named in a Press Release and featured in articles submitted to prominent Canadian architectural and construction publications. There will be one Grand Award winner with honourable mentions across each category. Award recipients will be honoured at the ECC 2018 Conference and Awards Reception. The ECC Conference is an event that brings together leading EIFS industry experts and stakeholders for an evening of networking, discussion and industry updates.
The Awards program is presided over by a jury panel of esteemed industry experts from a variety of backgrounds. Previous jurors have included prominent architects, architecture critics, and building scientists from across Canada.
