The Lab Design Excellence Awards program welcomes submissions from all those who may be involved in the lab design process—architects, lab planners, lab managers, engineers, construction professionals, equipment and furniture manufacturers, and more. Entry guidelines, FAQs, and submission instructions can be found at

The deadline to enter this prestigious competition has been extended to February 15, 2020. Submit your entry as soon as possible for your chance to win in one of three categories—Innovation, Safety, and Sustainability.

Your entry should demonstrate what makes your lab facility exceptional, and what makes it an inspiration to others who are looking to build a similar type of lab. Tell the story of your lab by describing your vision, execution, and delivery of the final laboratory facility through text and images, and explain how it brings a new level of excellence to the lab design community.

The winners will be honored at our Lab Design Summit, May 11-13, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia, in front of an audience of other lab users, lab managers, design/build experts, and peers. Please join us for this exciting event, including exclusive behind-the-scenes lab tours and AIA-accredited educational sessions from leading lab design 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 extended deadline to enter your lab facility is February 15, 2020. Visit for the entry guidelines, as well as helpful FAQs on how to submit your best possible entry.

Submit your lab today to be a part of history. Best of luck! We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta for the Lab Design Summit!
