The Buildy nominations are in. Nominated by their peers, the finalists in each of the four categories for the 2005 Buildy Awards have been chosen. Designed to increase awareness of the benefits of whole building integration and honor successful implementation strategies, the Buildy Awards Program celebrates the North American organizations and individuals who best support the vision of networked buildings.
The winners of the 2005 Buildy Awards will be selected by the BuilConn attendees during the Building Systems Expo on March 23 and announced at the BuilConn Awards Gala, March 24, in Dallas. Ballots can be cast during either the afternoon or evening Expo sessions. The finalists in the Best Integration and Best Building categories will have the opportunity to promote their project to Buildy voters during the Wednesday afternoon CaseStudies@BuilConn track. In separate sessions, Buildy voters can evaluate and compare Best Integration and Best Building finalists to make an informed decision before casting their ballot. For the Buildy finalists, these sessions provide additional exposure and an opportunity to showcase their achievements with networked building systems.
