Winners Announced for the 2019 Premier’s Awards of Excellence in Design

Awards were earned in the following categories: architecture, engineering & geoscience, graphic design, interior design, landscape architecture, planning, and integrated design (demonstrating significant involvement of two or more member associations in the project).

The competition was open to certified individuals and corporate members in good standing with a DCS member association.
