All of the winners were profiled in the August 2009 issue of Consulting-Specifying Engineer.
"The Product of the Year competition illuminates the products design engineers and specifiers are valuing for Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing systems in nonresidential buildings," said Michael Ivanovich, editor-in-chief. "In this tough economy, construction and operating budgets are under stress while sustainability issues for energy, water, and materials are growing. Flexibility, modularity, efficiency and durability seemed to be factors shared by many of this year's winners."
