This award, established in 2009, is presented annually to honour individuals, groups or companies that have introduced a new or innovative material or building system in Ontario, whose purpose is to improve the building envelope.
This Award, although presented to an individual, group or company, is given to recognize a significant improvement to building envelope construction or performance. The improvement must be demonstrable and advance excellence in building science, in the context of the building envelope. Each submission will be evaluated on ease of use; cost-efficiency; improved performance; and durability. Materials for use in both new and retrofit installations are eligible.
The honouree(s) will be invited to make a 20-minute presentation on the building system or material for which the Award is presented.
