Were you involved in an exceptional lab build or redesign recently? If so, we want to hear from you! Enter the Lab Design Excellence Awards competition today, for a chance for your project to be named one of the best new labs of 2020.

This prestigious new awards program is open to everyone involved in the lab design process—architects, lab planners, engineers, construction professionals, equipment and furniture manufacturers, and others. We invite you to submit your recent lab projects for this competition, for the opportunity to gain international recognition for your efforts.

Use your entry to illustrate why your vision, execution, and delivery of the final lab is innovative—and show how it brings a new level of excellence to the lab design community. Entries will be judged by a panel of leading industry experts.

The winners will be invited to our Lab Design Summit, May 11-13, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia, where they will be honored in front of an audience of their peers. Please join us for this exciting event, including exclusive behind-the-scenes lab tours and AIA-accredited educational sessions delivered by top industry professionals.

Labs that have been completed and occupied anytime between January 1, 2018 and January 1, 2020 are eligible to enter the Lab Design Excellence Awards competition. The deadline to enter your lab facility is February 1, 2020. Visit for the entry guidelines, as well as helpful tips for submitting your best possible entry.
