The SFIA Industry Project Awards focus on CFS manufacturing and construction. The awards program is a complement to the Design Excellence and Creative Detail Awards governed by CFSEI, the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute. Architects, engineers, manufacturers, distributors and contractors are eligible to enter their projects into the competition.

Winners of the Steel Framing Industry Association (SFIA) Industry Project Awards, which recognizes excellence in the use of SFIA-certified cold-formed steel (CFS) products, demonstrated extraordinary ingenuity. All projects showcase amazing steel framing design solutions.

Note that the projects must feature the use of cold-formed steel framing certified by the SFIA as code compliance, meaning that they have passed physical tests for mechanical properties, coatings and manufacturing tolerances, so our award winners are certainly ‘top tier’ in steel framing manufacturing and construction excellence.
