The award ceremony honors architects, interior designers, painting contractors, decorative artisans, manufacturers and suppliers for outstanding projects completed between January 1, 2016 and March 1, 2017. Axalta, in partnership with DSI Spaceframes, Inc., was awarded for its contribution to the San Francisco Transbay Transit Center project.
