Engineering Awards of Excellence Entries Due March 1
January 10, 2005 From American Institute of Steel Construction, Inc.
Entries for the 2005 AISC Engineering Awards of Excellence are due March 1. These prestigious awards give national recognition to structural engineering firms for innovation in steel-framed building projects.
Judges will consider the total structural design with an emphasis on:
- A creative solution to the project’s program requirements;
- Application of innovative design approaches in areas such as connections, gravity systems, lateral load resisting systems, fire protection, and blast;
- Use of innovative construction methods such as EDI, design-build, or advanced computer modeling; and
- Significance of engineering achievement and elegance of design.
To be eligible, projects must have been completed between January 1, 2002 and December 31, 2004. A significant part of the framing system must be steel wide-flange structural shapes or hollow structural sections, and the building must be located in the U.S., Canada, or Mexico. Both new construction and significant renovation projects are eligible.
Project entries are judged in four size categories—less than $10 million, $10 million to less than $25 million, $25 million to less than $100 million, and more than $100 million.
The awards will be presented at the 2005 North American Steel Construction Conference (April 6-9, 2005 in Montreal, Canada) and the winning projects will be featured in an issue of Modern Steel Construction magazine.
