Architectural Products' Product Innovation Awards (PIAs) recognize product ingenuity in the built environment. It acknowledges products, materials, and systems innovation that take commercial and institutional design to new heights.
Judged by a group of 50 independent industry professionals, the program offers a method for impartially reviewing and presenting innovative, investigation-worthy products. "Building on the success of last year's inaugural program, our second edition of the awards proves that commercial building manufacturers are committed to, and working arduously toward, delivering more sustainable products, as well as products that deliver better performance, life, and affordability," says Jim Crockett, editorial director for Architectural Products.
