Deadline extended! 2013 Building Team Awards entries now due March 22

4 great reasons to enter the 2013 Building Team Awards
2012 Platinum Award Winner: Rush University Medical Center, Chicago
March 15, 2013

The deadline for the 2013 Building Team Awards has been extended to Friday, March 22. The competition is open to new construction projects that were completed on or after January 1, 2012. Click here for entry information.

Winning a 2013 BTA will offer your firm a host of benefits. Here are a few no-brainer reasons to submit your best work:

1. Show off your creative solutions. The Building Team Awards is the industry's only new construction awards program that honors both the successful collaboration of the Building Team (architects, contractors, engineers, owner, etc.) and the design/construction excellence of the project. We focus on the problem-solving and creative solutions by the team, not just one member of the team.

2. Get showcased in BD+C and at the AIA show. The winners will be featured prominently in the June 2013 issue of Building Design+Construction, which will be distributed at the AIA National Convention in Denver.

3. Win more business. Thirty-seven percent of our 72,142 readers are decision makers at prominent Building Owner firms. That equates to more than 26,000 loyal BD+C readers who could be your next clients. The BTAs are a great way to showcase your work and team collaboration to thousands of potential clients.

4. Feature your work in a future issue of BD+C. The editors often use the BTA submissions (whether they're winners or not) as the basis for articles in the magazine and on BDCnetwork. It could be a creative structural solution or an innovative construction approach or a novel architectural design. We're always looking for great ideas.

The final deadline for submissions is Friday, March 22, 2013.
