December 17, 2020 – The National Frame Building Association (NFBA) is now accepting entries from member companies for the 2020 Building of the Year Awards. The application deadline is January 11, 2021.

Both the Experts and Masters divisions share 12 award categories each:

Only one Judges’ Award is chosen each year to showcase an exceptional building distinguished from all other submissions in both categories.
“I am thrilled for this year’s submissions,” says NFBA Chairman Matt Greiner, “With the challenges we all faced in 2020, the entries will show the resilience, fortitude, and creativity of our industry and the people in it.”
Winners of a Building of the Year Award will receive a plaque to showcase their achievement, recognition on the NFBA website and in upcoming NFBA publications and media, and a special feature at the annual Frame Building Expo on the show floor for more than 1,000 building and design professionals to view.
