Steel Joist Institute Design Awards Call for Entries

The Rocky Top Sports complex in Gatlinburg, Tenn., was a winner in this year's Design Awards competition in the nonindustrial category. The project's steel fabricator was Superior Steel, Inc. (an AISC member and certified fabricator and erector). 

The Steel Joist Institute is accepting entries until February 10, 2017 for its annual Design Awards.

The awards will be presented in three categories:

  • Industrial (i.e., manufacturing facilities, distribution centers and warehouses)
  • Nonindustrial (i.e., office buildings, schools and churches)
  • Unique applications (i.e., projects with a unique application of steel joists)

Each project will be judged based on flexibility, speed of construction, value and aesthetic considerations.
