Please join the Rudolph/Libbe Companies in encouraging and recognizing innovation in construction.


The Construction Innovation Forum is accepting nominations for the prestigious NOVA Awards until March 31, 2013. In the last 25 years, CIF has presented NOVA Awards for more than 90 innovations from 15 countries.

Winners represent all areas of construction – design, fabrication, building, detailing, rehabilitation, energy, contract administration, labor relations, management, training, procurement, maintenance, equipment, materials, concepts or methods.  Construction innovations must improve quality, safety, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

GEM Energy’s micro turbine distribution partner, Capstone Turbine Corporation,  and GEM, Inc. received a 2011 NOVA Award for micro turbine technology at Syracuse University’s green data center, one of the most energy-efficient data centers in the world.
