Unsung Hero Award

The Unsung Hero Award is an acknowledgement that there are often unrecognized individuals and/or companies that play a pivotal and indispensable role in the realization of extraordinary facade system programs.


This award is intended to bring such individuals and/or companies to the forefront, highlighting the key contribution(s) they have made in the advancement of some aspect of facade design, engineering, fabrication, installation and long-term performance.

The Unsung Hero Award is intended to feature a key individual project, but also may identify an individual that has made general contributions to the field which holds the potential to positively impact projects beyond the specific one identified. The accomplishments of these individuals and companies should be consistent with the goals of the Institute in advancing the art, science and technology of conceptualizing, designing, planning, and constructing high performance building facades for the benefit of planet and people.
