Call for Entries: 2018 North American Copper in Architecture Awards

Architects, designers, and sheet metal contractors are invited to submit their copper building projects for the 2018 North American Copper in Architecture (NACIA) awards program through January 31, 2018. Now in its 11th year, the program recognizes and promotes architectural copper and copper alloy structures in North America.

In 2008, the Copper Development Association (CDA) and the Canadian Copper & Brass Development Association (CCBDA) launched the NACIA awards program to highlight the innovative uses of architectural copper in the United States and Canada. Past NACIA winners include government buildings, libraries, museums, firehouses, educational buildings, private residences and places of worship. For a complete list, visit CDA’s website.

Eligible projects must be located in North America, feature a significant application of architectural copper alloys and have been completed within the past three years. Projects are judged by a panel of industry experts based on:

  • Copper system design
  • Integration of copper alloys with the overall building design
  • Craftsmanship of installation
  • Excellence in innovation or restoration

Winners will receive a custom copper plaque featuring an etching of their award-winning project at the 2018 awards ceremony in New York City. Following the reception, projects will be featured on CDA’s website and promoted in various publications. For more information about the NACIA awards program, visit the Call for Entries Page:
