The North America Copper in Architecture (NACIA) awards program – established in 2008 by the Copper Development Association and the Canadian Copper & Brass Development Association – recognizes and promotes copper buildings in the United States and Canada. Buildings are selected across three categories: New Construction, Renovation/Restoration and Ornamental Applications. Thousands of pounds of copper were used by the 2018 award-winning projects.
The 2018 submissions were judged and evaluated by a panel of copper industry and architecture experts based on overall building design, integration of copper, craft of copper installation and excellence in innovation or historic renovation.130 Plumbers Training Facility, Chicago.
