The Metal Construction Association's annual Chairman's Awards are based on overall appearance, significance of metal in the project, innovative use of metal, and the role of metal in achieving project objectives. Selected by a panel of architects, MCA announced the winners at its winter meeting in Palm Springs, California.
This year's panel of judges included distinguished architects James Theimer, principal architect at Trilogy Architecture; Mark Roddy, lecturer in the Department of Design at California State University, Sacramento; and Erik Mehlman, Partner and Design Lead at BuildSense | Architecture + Construction.
