MaryBeth DiDonna

The Lab Design Excellence Awards competition will honor the best new and newly renovated labs, in the categories of Innovation, Safety, and Sustainability. Entries will be accepted until February 1, 2020, which means you only have a little over two weeks left to complete and submit your application!

This international awards program welcomes submissions from all who are involved in the lab design process—architects, lab planners, lab managers, engineers, construction professionals, equipment and furniture manufacturers, and more. Entry guidelines and FAQs can be found on the competition website,

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

The winners will be welcomed to our Lab Design Summit, May 11-13, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia, to be honored in front of an audience of other lab users, 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 deadline to enter your lab facility is February 1, 2020. Visit for the entry guidelines, as well as helpful FAQs related to submitting 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!
