All commercial, industrial and institutional buildings are eligible. Any architectural, engineering, contracting or development firm may submit one entry. Please indicate the name of the firm submitting the entry and a contact name. All entries become property of BD&C and will not be returned. Feature articles on the winning projects will be published in our October 2002 issue.

Entries must include:

  1. Name and location of the project.
