WoodWorks West accepting nominations for Wood Design Awards

WoodWorks is now accepting nominations for its West Region Wood Design Awards. The awards recognize excellence in wood design and construction, as well as innovative projects that showcase wood’s strength, beauty, versatility and cost-effectiveness.

“We want to honor those architects, engineers and designers that have found innovative ways to use wood in buildings,” said Bryan Schuyler, regional director of WoodWorks West. “These are real-world examples that demonstrate how wood can help maximize the beauty, functionality and sustainability of modern buildings while in many cases also minimizing cost.”

Projects may be submitted in seven categories: institutional, commercial, or multi-story/midrise wood design; interior beauty of wood; green building; innovative engineering with wood; and traditional use of wood.

WoodWorks said there is no cost to nominate a project or individual for a wood design award and multiple submissions are encouraged. Projects must have been completed in the past three years.
