Metal Construction Association Design Awards – Call for Entries


The Metal Construction Association’s Design Awards (formerly called the Chairman’s Awards) recognize the creative use of metal in architecture. The MCA annually awards member companies involved in the construction of outstanding building projects that use metal in significant and innovative ways. Submissions are due by June 30 and a panel of architects will choose the award recipients from submitted projects that highlight specific products used to enhance the design of a building. Design Award Winners will be showcased at METALCON 2023 in Las Vegas October 18 – 20. All submitted projects must include materials provided by an MCA member.

Awards will be presented in the following eight categories:

  • Use of metal composite materials
  • Use of insulated metal panels
  • Use of single-skin metal wall panels
  • Use of metal retrofit roof and/or wall systems
  • Best metal roof (residential and commercial)
  • Metal in interior design
  • Solar integration with metal

The ten innovative projects selected last year recognized the importance and value metal building products bring to great design. To see the 2022 award winners, go here
