Vulcraft has announced the winners of its 2017 NuHeights Design Awards. The competition is designed to acknowledge outstanding design, architecture and the diverse applications of building with steel joist and decking. The award winners were chosen for their unique and innovative use of Vulcraft/Verco Group products to produce state-of-the-art buildings. 

The fourth annual NuHeights Design Awards competition was open to fabricators, erectors, engineers, architects and general contractors of nonresidential buildings in the U.S. and Canada who completed projects using Vulcraft Joists or Steel Decking, Verco Decking or Ecospan Composite Floor System products. The projects must have been completed between Jan. 1, 2016, and Oct. 31, 2016, to be eligible for the 2017 awards. Winners were selected by an independent panel of judges.
