Southern Wall Systems wins two EIFS Hero Awards at the annual meeting of EIFS Industry Members Association (EIMA). Including the top recognition of 'EFIS Hero of the Year'!

The prestigious EIFS Hero Awards honor a wide variety of projects that exemplify the unique attributes of exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS).  The award winning projects represent the best in the continuous insulation (CI) industry, all examples of exceptional architecture, and are most definitely heroes hidden in plain sight. The winners of the 2018 EIFS Hero awards were acknowledged at an awards ceremony during the industry-wide annual meeting of the EIFS Industry Members Association (EIMA) held in March 2019. We invite you to delight in the design excellence of these award winning, spectacular EIFS projects.



Liv.Able Showroom

High Point, NC

Located in High Point, North Carolina (the “furniture capital of the world”), this project displays collections of furniture that attract entry-level to high-end consumers. Specially engineered scaffolding was created by Southern Wall Systems to accommodate the compound curving at the top of the 30 foot by 70 foot panels. The bold design clearly demonstrates the design flexibility that can be accomplished by using EIFS, and the project is most deserving of the honor and recognition of the 2018 EIFS Hero of the Year Award.
