ATAS International, Inc. honored its 2017 Project of the Year winners at a recent awards banquet. This annual competition recognizes projects in which ATAS products have been incorporated into the design of the building.
Six project categories were included in this year’s competition: commercial roofs, commercial walls, residential roofs, residential walls and two new categories for 2017: accents and interiors. An independent panel of judges reviewed photos of all the projects submitted throughout the year and chose first, second, and third place winners in each category.
Receiving the first-place honors for commercial roofs was the Sprinkles at Disney Springs project in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Champagne CastleTop panels were used on this building, which were installed by S&S Roofing Systems, Inc. and purchased through Gulfeagle Supply.

The panels were purchased through DS Siding and were installed by Stonewood Enterprises. The residential walls category first-place winner was a residential townhouse located in Philadelphia, Penn. Designed by Arbitare Design Studio, Classic Bronze Opaline panels were installed on the walls by Kevin Hartzell, LLC. The panels were purchased through Allied Building Products.
For the accents category, the CaroMont Regional Medical Center project in Gastonia, North Carolina, took first-place.

Jim Bush, vice president of Sales and Marketing of ATAS, said, “Each year we look forward to honoring the architects, contractors and distributors who were involved in the award-winning projects. ATAS received many entries into the 2017 competition, and we have created a 24-page booklet to showcase all those projects. This “idea book” should be useful to architects, contractors, and building owners to help them envision possible metal panel applications and design aesthetics for their future projects.”
