 Monday, January 3, 2022

Awards celebrate excellence in commercial and multi-family wood building design across the U.S.
WoodWorksWood Products Council announced today that it is seeking nominations for the 2022 U.S. Wood Design Awards, which recognize excellence and innovation
in mass timber, heavy timber, traditional wood-frame and hybrid buildings. A non-profit dedicated to
helping project teams design, engineer and construct successful wood buildings, WoodWorks been
hosting its award program for 15 years as a way to recognize developers and design teams whose
creativity and emphasis on quality continue to expand the possibilities for wood buildings.

“Wood means so many things as a modern building solution. It’s helping us meet aggressive
sustainability goals while inspiring building designers—and building occupants—all underscored by the
incredible flexibility and resilience of both traditional and innovative systems,” said Jennifer Cover,
WoodWorks’ President and CEO. “The awards are a chance to celebrate wood’s excellence at every
scale, along with its thoughtful application, and teams across the country who realize its potential in
ways that motivate others to do the same.”

Nominations will be judged by an independent jury of design and building professionals, who will select
projects in nine categories and up to 10 projects to receive regional excellence awards. In addition to
specific criteria for each category, judges will consider alignment with Environmental, Social and
Governance (ESG) principles. WoodWorks also takes inspiration from the American Institute of
Architects’ Framework for Design Excellence, which includes a set of guiding principles to inform
progress toward a zero-carbon, equitable, resilient and healthy built environment.
