Shaw Contract is delighted to announce the 2019 category winners for the impact of their work within the industry segment. A respected panel of ten design professionals was invited to evaluate and review each project and the methods that successfully contributed to the evolving nature of the built environment. A total of 36 category winners were selected and these winning projects will automatically be entered into the final awards program and people’s choice voting.
