UW Life Sciences Building was 2018 DJC Building of the Year.

Did your firm finish a really cool project last year? If so, here's your chance to show the world and maybe pick up some bling in the process.

The DJC is holding its annual Building of the Year contest and we need your help.

We're getting a list together of candidates and are looking for a few more nominations by the close of business on Friday. To be eligible, projects must have been completed in 2019.

Here are some projects on our list: Arrive apartment tower, Seattle; Peter Kirk Elementary School, Kirkland; 2+U, Seattle; McMenamins Elks Temple, Tacoma; UW Bill & Melinda Gates Center for Computer Science & Engineering, Seattle; Katerra factory, Spokane Valley; and CWU Dugmore Hall, Ellensburg.

DJC staff will develop a list of finalists with reader input. Readers will then vote on their favorite from that list.

The winning project's architect, general contractor, structural engineer and owner/developer will each get a commemorative plaque, and the DJC will randomly pick one voter to win a cool prize.

Here are some of the past award winners: UW Life Sciences Building, AMLI Arc, Hazel Wolf K-8 School, Cornish Commons, Sunset Electric apartments, Paul G. Allen Center for Global Animal Health at WSU and Swedish/Issaquah Medical Center.
