The EIFS Industry Members Association (EIMA) is proud to announce the winners of the 2019 EIFS Project Hero Awards. The Hero Awards Program recognizes and honors outstanding projects in the EIFS industry. Awards were presented during a ceremony on March 3, 2020 during the EIMA Annual Meeting at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort in Amelia Island, Florida.

"The EIFS Hero Awards program is of great value to the EIFS industry and is a chance for EIMA members to show the entire design and construction industry the appeal of this best ever wall cladding," said Steve Kennedy of the Dow Chemical Company and EIMA's 2020/2022 President. "The awards ceremony was a highlight of the 2020 EIMA Annual Meeting. Each of the award-winning projects uniquely showcases the many benefits of EIFS, and how truly diverse the system is."

A total of 29 EIFS projects were entered into the awards competition and were judged by a jury consisting of Ernie Conrad of Conrad Engineers, and Peter Freeman, Principal at Freeman Kennett Architects. The jurors created two different award categories, Awards of Merit and Hero Awards, and ten projects were winners. Of the five Hero Award winning projects, the jury found two to be stellar; one was awarded the prestigious "Hero of the Year", and the other was a close runner up.
