AIA North Carolina
The AIA North Carolina Firm Award shall be awarded to a North Carolina firm that has consistently produced quality architecture with a verifiable level of client satisfaction for a period of at least 10 years as an established presence in this state. This award is the highest honor the Chapter can bestow upon a firm.
North Carolina architectural firms practicing under the leadership of either a single AIA North Carolina member principal or several AIA North Carolina member principals are eligible for the Firm Award. In addition, firms that have been reorganized and whose name has been changed or modified are also eligible, as long as the firm has been in operation in North Carolina for a period of at least 10 years. Although firms that are headquartered in other states or firms that perform the majority of their work in other states or countries are eligible, the firm’s work and impact within the state of North Carolina shall be of primary consideration. A firm owned or managed by the Chapter president, president-elect or members of the Awards committee shall not be eligible for consideration.
Nominations may be make by members, the public, or by AIA North Carolina Sections. Nominations are due by September 30, 2016.
