2010 MCA President's Awards: The Metal Construction Association presents the winners of its annual awards

The Metal Construction Association, Glenview, Ill., recognized its 2010 President's
Award winners at its Annual Meeting in San Diego, Calif., in late January. The
President's Awards are an annual designation given to outstanding building
projects involving MCA members. The awards honor innovation and creativity while
showcasing how MCA members' products help achieve innovative building designs.

Each year, winners are selected from projects submitted by MCA members
to Metal Architecture magazine's annual Design Awards program. MCA board
members chose winners in five categories: Overall Excellence, Roofing, Commercial-
Industrial, Municipal-Institutional and Residential. The MCA President's Awards are
