Siemens Industry Inc. has announced the 2011 Smartest Building in America challenge. Open to facilities that use Siemens operating systems, the Smartest Building in America challenge launched on May 1 and continues through Aug. 1, 2011. The challenge recognizes the innovative implementation of APOGEE or TALON building automation systems and the role these systems play in making buildings smarter, efficient and more sustainable.

Last year’s winners included the Duke Energy Center, Charlotte, N.C.; the Iowa Central Community College Biotechnology and Health Science Building, Fort Dodge, Iowa; Alaska’s Cold Climate Housing Research Center, Fairbanks, Alaska; and the Rasmussen Building at Grandview University, Des Moines, Iowa.

Participants are asked to submit brief videos that explain why their buildings are the smartest in America. To view more information on rules and prizes or to submit an entry form and video visit: www.smartestbuildinginamerica.com.
