IRVING, Texas - To increase awareness of the benefits of whole building integration and award successful implementation strategies, BuilConn organizers have announced the 2006 Buildy Awards program honoring the North American organizations and individuals who best support the vision of networked building systems.

The five award categories include:

  • Vision - This award will be presented to the industry professional who best demonstrates a vision of whole building integration and interoperability through advocacy, promotion, education, and training endeavors.

  • Initiative - New in 2006, this award honors a company or organization that has shown or launched a key initiative to enable or otherwise forward the subject of integrated and intelligent buildings.

  • Best Integration Project - Awarded to a systems integrator, the recipient of this award demonstrates the ability to efficiently integrate a wide array of building systems together and successfully enable operation over a corporate IT infrastructure.

  • Best New Product - This award honors a manufacturer whose new product or service overcame a significant challenge, enhanced, or simplified the integration process.

  • Best Building - This award will be presented to the building owner or consultant with the most progressive building technology supporting the vision of whole building integration. The building must be currently occupied.

    "The Buildy Awards generate much interest and excitement, and we are pleased to shine a spotlight on those who have contributed so much to the advancement of full-scale integration," said Anto Budiardjo, BuilConn organizer. "The award winners are always an impressive display of technology, dedication, and strategy."

    Participation is open to industry professionals, systems integrators, technology manufacturers, building owners, and consulting engineers in North America. Candidates may enter the competition by nominating themselves, their own company, or their peers. Application forms and additional information are available at www.builconn.com/2006/na/content/buildy.asp?tabvar=a.
