EIMA honored four projects for outstanding use of EIFS in its annual "Excellence in EIFS Construction Awards" during its annual meeting in San Diego in February. In a slight deviation from previous awards, two large-scale commercial projects were awarded top honors in the "New Construction Over 10,000 Square Feet" category due a lack of smaller project submissions. This year's winners are:
