Copper Development Association names sustainability award winners
“Architects and contractors continue to develop innovative and impressive designs that speak to copper’s formability, durability and unique weathering characteristics,” said Stephen Knapp, director of the Copper Development Association’s Strip, Sheet, & Plate Council to Construction Specifier magazine.
“Copper may be referred to as mankind’s oldest metal, but it certainly is not antiquated. In fact, as green building trends continue, we expect specification of copper to increase in order to meet various sustainable building standards,” he said.
Fifteen projects across the United States and Canada were recognized for outstanding application of architectural copper and copper alloys at the 2018 North American Copper in Architecture (NACIA) awards, presented by the Copper Development Association (CDA) and the Canadian Copper & Brass Development Association (CCBDA).
