AISC IDEAS2 Awards Announced at NASCC

Thirteen structural steel building projects have earned national recognition in the 2017 Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel awards program (IDEAS2). The winning projects and their respective team members were recognized today during the 2017 NASCC: The Steel Conference in San Antonio. Conducted annually by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), the IDEAS2 awards recognize excellence and innovation in the use of structural steel on building projects across the country. In existence for more than half a century, the award is the highest honor bestowed on building projects by the structural steel industry in the U.S.

“These projects and the creative people behind them showcase the beauty and usefulness of structural steel,” said Charlie Carter, president of AISC. “What a great compilation of excellent solutions. Congratulations to the award-winning teams!”
