Window + Door Awards Presents: Innovation in Crisis
By Laurie Cowin

When the COVID-19 pandemic swept the world earlier this year, companies everywhere modified their operations nearly overnight. Many businesses sat vacant amid government-mandated shutdowns, businesses that could set their employees up to work from home and essential businesses altered their operations to accommodate social distancing and other safety practices.

In an effort to recognize the extraordinary innovation among companies during the pandemic, Window + Door is using its annual awards program to present the special program Window + Door Awards Presents: Innovation in Crisis.

Companies are invited to submit entries by Aug. 21 that highlight the industry's role in responding to COVID-19 through products, projects and more. Examples include companies that:

  • Produced solutions for safer and healthier workspaces 
  • Developed products for frontline healthcare workers
  • Adjusted jobsite, plant and office practices to protect workers
  • Implemented new procedures or invested in new technology 
  • Otherwise responded to the current situation with grace and innovation.
