The Concrete Masonry Design Awards Program recognizes and encourages outstanding architectural design that incorporates the use of concrete masonry within the building envelope. The program also recognizes the Designers, Builders, Structural Engineering Firms, Concrete Masonry Suppliers, and project Owners. This program is sponsored by Concrete Masonry Association of California and Nevada and co-sponsored by AIA California Council.

Projects must be located in California or Nevada, and constructed and completed within the last five years (Jan. 1, 2012 to present) to be eligible. An exception is made for the 25 Year Award where the project must be 25 years or older as of Jan. 1, 2017. All projects must be completed and inherently sustainable.

Projects must be submitted by the architect of record. An exception is made for the 25 Year Award in the event the original architect of record is unavailable or unclear. In this case, any architect from the design firm (original or current if the firm has been sold) that designed the original structure or who designed any renovations or updates to the original structure, may submit the project.

Closing date for postmark of submitted materials is April 10. Click here for more information.
