The MBI Awards of Distinction contest is the commercial modular industry's premier
awards program, offering competition in over 30 categories for MBI members: building
manufacturers, dealers, and product and service providers. Entries are relocatable,
permanent, and renovated modular buildings as well as industry marketing pieces.
A new green building design category gives both MBI members and college and university
students the opportunity for world-class recognition. For students, winning also
means receiving a scholarship towards higher education.
Each entry is reviewed by an impartial panel of industry and non-industry construction
and code experts, architects and engineers, and marketing professionals. Building
entries are judged on architectural excellence, technical innovation & sustainability,
cost effectiveness, energy efficiency, and calendar days to complete. Marketing pieces are
judged on stated objectives, creativity, methodology, and results. Green building designs
are judged on eight criteria, from comfort and energy strategies to economic practicality.
