Benner Award


September 25-27, 2019 | Schaumburg, IL


In memory of Nancy Benner, the Benner Award recognizes outstanding achievement in making building commissioning “business as usual.” This was Nancy’s mission, her personal dream, and her challenge to each of us working in the commercial building industry.

The committee seeks nominations of individuals and programs/organizations that have engaged in educational, demonstration, policy, or actual commissioning activities that successfully promote excellence in building commissioning. Nominations in each of the two categories will be accepted and judged separately. Resubmission of previous nominees is encouraged.
