BUILDINGS is gearing up for its 2016 Money-Saving Products awards. We're looking for budget-friendly solutions that make life easier for facilities managers and building owners.
||Manufacturers with products that support commercial buildings and create cost savings to facility managers.
||March 11, 2016
||Lighting, Roofing, Envelope, HVAC, Energy, Safety and Security, Maintenance, Water Savings, and Occupant Satisfaction
Items must be compatible with commercial settings, including education, corporate, healthcare, hospitality, government, and retail.
Products can enhance building management through areas such as energy efficiency, water conservation, space optimization, labor costs, occupant health, liability, or durability.
Residential, contractor, and construction-related products are not applicable to our audience. Individual product winners from 2015 or 2014 are also not eligible. Products must be available in the U.S. and Canada.
||A press release or brochure – A standard press release is suitable. Submitters can elaborate on the product’s cost savings in an additional field on the entry form.
High-resolution images (up to five) – A mix of standard and application photos is best so judges can visualize how the product is used. Company or product logos are suitable if a photo isn't available. Only one will be selected for publication.
High resolution images must be 300dpi (at least 250KB) and can be vertical or horizontal shots. We accept TIFF, JPG, or EPS files. Files smaller than 150KB are unusable and will be rejected.
||Winners are selected by our editorial staff based on their relevance to commercial building management and potential for cost savings.
This is a competitive awards program – submission does not guarantee selection. Your company may submit multiple products, but only one may be chosen as a winner.
Entries that do not win for Money-Saving Products will be considered for placement in a future Products Section.
||Money-Saving Products is a special feature in our June 2016 issue. Your product description will be approximately 80 words and includes an image.
The online feature will be promoted on our homepage, in our June 13 Facility Systems Solutions e-newsletter, and across our social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn).
Your product will be added to our Online Products, a digital catalog of solutions for facility managers.
||Winners receive complimentary issues of the magazine + links to the online feature and their individual product page. They will also have access to the Money-Saving Product logo and a press release for customization.
