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 13 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: projects greater than $75 million; projects $15 million to $75 million; and projects less than $15 million. In addition, the panel awarded a Presidential Award of Excellence in Engineering to one project for structural engineering accomplishment, and also selected an outstanding sculpture project.

Feast your eyes on all of this year’s IDEAS2 winners in our current May issue!
