Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute Announces 2023 PCI Design Awards Winners
CHICAGO –The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute is excited to announce the winners of 2023 PCI Design Awards. Three panels of jurors honored 25 winners and eight honorable mentions for the specials, buildings, and transportation categories.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the PCI Design Awards program which recognizes creative and innovative useses of precast concrete. A panel of engineers, architects, and precast concrete producers 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.
Several projects are also honored with special awards. These are judged on similar criteria to the building and transportation projects, as well as additional requirements, including industry advancement, sustainable design, technology, and designs using all-precast concrete solutions. These are the Harry H. Edwards Industry Advancement Award, the Building Information Modeling (BIM) Award, the Sustainable Design Award, and the All-Precast Concrete Solution Award.
“We are once again thrilled to recognize the tremendous capabilities of the precast concrete industry to meet the needs of the built environment, especially on this milestone 60th anniversary of the program,” said PCI President and CEO Bob Risser, PE. “Congratulations to all the winners, and thanks to the jurors and PCI staff who make the program a success. Through the past 60 years, the precast concrete industry continues to innovate and improve and these exemplary projects are the latest examples of that.”
Winning projects will be recognized February 24 at the 2022 PCI Convention in Columbus, Ohio. PCI publications, including Ascent, PCI Journal, and ASPIRE magazines, will also feature the winning projects.
Photos of all projects are available by emailing email@example.com.
