The Readers’ Choice Awards honor innovation and excellence in products that contribute to the efficient and profitable operations, maintenance and cleaning of institutional and commercial buildings in the United States. This year, their readers voted for the SolaMaster Series as the winner for its exterior maintenance products category.

The New Product Awards honor the outstanding product development achievements of manufacturers and suppliers whose products or services are particularly noteworthy in their ability to enhance the learning environment. Our Solatube 750 DS-C Tubular Daylighting Device (TDD) for Closed Ceiling ICC 500 and FEMA P-361 Compliant Storm Shelters won platinum in the building envelope – toplighting category.
The ADEX Awards recognizes the absolute best in quality, innovation, form, function and creativity that impact the design community each year.

The Best of 2023 Awards celebrate the best products in architecture and interior design of the year. A panel of judges, who are among the architecture and design industry’s most respected professionals in their respective fields, select the winners for each category.

The Project Profile Awards feature some of the best commercial construction projects in the country in retail, restaurants, hospitality, healthcare and more. We received this honor for our contribution to an adaptive reuse project, where we played a pivotal role in transforming a dimly lit, historic bank into the thoughtfully designed and human-centric Hotel Emery. The project utilized 14 of our SkyVault M74 DS tubular daylighting devices to deliver natural daylight deep into the hotel’s lobby.
The Awards of Distinction represent the highest honors awarded in the modular construction industry. The Best of Show Awards is a part of the Awards of Distinction, in which attendees of the World of Modular conference and trade show vote directly for projects. This year, the San Diego Airport Project won the relocatable building category with the help of several Solatube Daylighting Systems, providing an abundance of natural daylight with minimal heat gain and loss from sunup to sundown.
The Innovator Certification honors businesses that have met the highest verifiable standards of sustainability. The City of Carlsbad Green Business Program awarded us this certification for implementing several meaningful measures at our Oak Ridge Way and Cousteau Court facilities, including enhancing recycling and composting programs, reducing computer and printer usage, using green-certified products, installing water-efficient fixtures and more.
As we reflect on the different awards and recognitions we received in 2023, we are given even more momentum to continue developing more innovative and sustainable solutions going into 2024. Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to continuing to share our journey with you.
