Now in its 56th year, the PCI Design Awards showcase the creative and innovate uses of precast and prestressed concrete in a wide variety of structures.

The program demonstrates how designers are continuing to use high-performance precast, prestressed concrete to achieve sustainable, more cost-effective, aesthetically pleasing, and quickly-constructed projects.

“As an industry, precast concrete manufacturers have a long history of delivering high-quality, resilient, and beautiful building and infrastructure systems to the marketplace that enhance end users’ lives,” said PCI President and CEO Bob Risser, P.E. “The PCI Design Awards are one way we recognize the best of the best in structural and architectural design and building innovation.”

A panel of industry experts that includes precast concrete producers, engineers, and architects judges all nominees. The buildings and transportation categories are judged on aesthetic, structural, and use versatility; site, energy and operational efficiency, and risk reduction; and resiliency, such as structure durability, multi-hazard protection, and life safety and health.

PCI also selects several projects for special awards that are judged on similar criteria to the building and transportation projects, as well as additional requirements, including industry advancement, sustainable design, and designs using all-precast concrete solutions. These awards include the Harry H. Edwards Industry Advancement Award, The All-Precast Concrete Solution Award, and the Sustainable Design Award. Page 2 of 2

“We are proud of the time and rigor the judges put into judging the projects submitted for our Design Awards program,” Risser added. “The teams that delivered the winning projects should be extremely proud of their accomplishments, their contributions to the precast concrete industry, and, most importantly, to the communities in which their projects reside and affect the lives of the end-users.”

All winning projects will be showcased and honored at the PCI Convention in Louisville, Ky., on March 1, and will be published in PCI publications, including PCI Journal, Ascent, and Aspire magazines. Details and photos of all winning and honorable mention projects are available at the PCI website at pci.org.
