12 building projects that represent the best in AEC team collaboration

The interior of Fulton Center in Manhattan, N.Y., is constructed of architecturally exposed structural steel, glass storefronts, stainless steel panels, GFRC column covers and ceilings, granite flooring, and a decorative cable net structure in the oculus. Spiral stairs, 15 ADA-compliant elevators, and 10 escalators convey 300,000 passengers a day between nine train lines. A 350-foot tunnel connects to train lines at the World Trade Center.

 

Building Design+Construction's Building Team Awards recognize newly built (opened or occupied January 1, 2015 or later) projects that best exemplify the collaboration between owner, architect, engineer, and contractor to produce buildings that exhibit architectural and construction excellence.

Submissions are judged based on two criteria:

  1. Design/engineering/construction quality and excellence (50%)
  2. How the Building Team (architects, engineers, contractors, CMs, subcontractors, building owners, developers, government entities, etc.) collaborated to overcome obstacles and make the project succeed (50%)

Here are the winners of this year's Building Team Awards, the 19th annual edition.
