Every year, AISC’s IDEAS2 Awards honor the best in steel-frame building design and recognize all project team members responsible for excellence and innovation in a project’s use of structural steel. This year’s 12 winning projects combine creativity, economy and technical achievement through the use of structural steel.

A panel of design and construction industry professionals identified National and Merit winners in three categories, based on total constructed value: less than $15 million, $15 million to $75 million and greater than $75 million. In addition, the panel awarded a Presidential Award of Excellence in Engineering to one project for structural engineering accomplishments.

Feast your eyes on all of this year’s IDEAS2 winners in the May issue of Modern Steel.
