2016 MCN Building & Roofing Awards

08 2016  Brooklyn  Park  Library 33C Low Rez

The Grand Award and Metal Roofing-New winner in the 2016 Metal Construction News Building & Roofing Awards is the Hennepin County Library-Brooklyn Park in Brooklyn Park, Minn. Submitted in the Metal Roofing-New Construction category, the project was noteworthy for its exterior that features a split-faced, stacked-slate façade with zinc metal panels and western red cedar accents; sloped roof forms; and expansive windows. In a strong group of projects covering diverse applications, the judges selected it calling it a "clear and distinct winner" citing its roofing that was "necessary and well thought out, and an integral part of the whole design."



Metal Construction News would like to thank all of the nominees and our two judges for their hard work.
