WoodWorks Accepting Nominations for 2015 U.S. Wood Design Awards

WoodWorks announced last week that it is now accepting nominations for the 2015 U.S. Wood Design Awards. The national award program recognizes excellence in wood design, engineering and construction, as well as innovative projects that showcase attributes of wood such as strength, beauty, versatility, cost effectiveness and sustainability.

As an initiative of the Wood Products Council, WoodWorks is a cooperative venture of major North American wood associations, research organizations, government agencies and other funding partners. It provides one-stop access to the widest possible range of information on the use of wood in non-residential and multi-family structures.

The deadline for nominations is September 30, 2014.

Projects may be submitted in the following eight categories:

  • Multi-Story Wood Design
  • Wood in Educational Buildings
  • Commercial Wood Design
  • Institutional Wood Design
  • Green Building with Wood
  • Beauty of Wood
  • Wood in Government Buildings
  • Innovative Wood Engineering

Projects across these categories will also be selected to receive regional excellence awards.

“Wood Design Awards provide an opportunity for architects and engineers to showcase cutting edge projects that leverage wood’s beauty and versatility,” said WoodWorks executive director Jennifer Cover, PE. “What sets a project apart is its ability to demonstrate ingenuity and the unique attributes of using wood in design, such as cost savings, sustainability and structural performance.”
