Jim Bush, VP of Sales and Marketing for ATAS, stated, “Throughout the year, ATAS receives many entries into our annual project of the year competition. We are pleased to honor the architects, contractors and distributors who were involved in the award-winning projects. A 32-page booklet has been created to showcase the projects that won an award, or were nominated. 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.”
