Building of America Network Honors Hilltop Elementary School

Southfield, MI – From hundreds of submitted projects, only the best have been selected as Building of America award winners. The award honors the country’s most innovative, unique and challenging projects – projects that are particularly noteworthy and/or that give back to their respective communities. The Hilltop Elementary School project is now available for viewing online at the Building of America website.

The Building of America award-winning projects represent the best in new construction and renovation in a wide variety of categories, including commercial and retail, mixed-use, multifamily residential, government, transportation/infrastructure, health care, education, religion, historical restoration, and more. Submitted projects are reviewed by a selection committee that is looking for projects with unique design or construction elements; innovative solutions to challenges, including financing, environmental, zoning, etc.; efficient and cost-effective methods of planning and execution; and/or that have a significant economical impact on the region, among others.

The Building of America Network, created by Construction Communications, is an essential link, bringing owners together with the design and construction industry nationwide by profiling new construction and renovation projects in a case-study format. Owners can read, in the words of other owners, architects and general contractors, about the newest facilities joining the landscape in their respective region. More importantly, the case studies provide a tool to help owners learn from one another’s experiences. The website combines more than 50,000 links and millions of searches each year.

With more than a decade of experience, The Building of America Network in partnership with Construction Communications, based in Southfield, Michigan, has been publishing since 1996.
