FTI is accepting nominations for our biennial Vitruvian Honors & Awards through Monday, October 4, 2021! This celebration, which will be hosted on December 2, 2021, will honor exemplary contributions to facade design, engineering, fabrication, installation, and lifecycle performance.
Projects, project teams, and individuals making unprecedented achievements in the field of facade design and delivery are welcome to apply. Visit our website or see below for additional information on categories, eligibility, and important dates.
During the awards ceremony on December 2, 2021, FTI will announce an award recipient in seven distinct categories:
- Outstanding New Facade
- Outstanding Facade Renovation
- Outstanding Facade Preservation
- Outstanding Facade Innovation
- Outstanding Facade Integration
- Collaborative Achievement
- Unsung Hero
Category Spotlight: Collaborative Achievement
To help spark submission ideas, we’re highlighting information about one category each week. This time, we’re delving into the Collaborative Achievement Award.
The Collaborative Achievement Award is intended to recognize the teams responsible for project, research, product development, or other advances in facade technology, who have made extraordinary contributions to the art, science and technology of building facade systems through demonstrable, deep collaborative processes.
To be clear, this award need not be related to a specific project but can be for an innovation in a product or process that resulted from the efforts of a team, especially a team represented by stakeholders from diverse fields of experience. This award should exemplify one of the main tenants of the FTI in “breaking down the silos” between those professions involved in the design, procurement and execution of high-performance and sustainable facade systems. Novel submissions are encouraged; any extraordinary team-based contribution is welcome.
