Chicago — Twenty-six awards were presented to projects from throughout North America at the 54th annual PCI Design Awards, which includes best-in-class awards for both transportation structures and buildings, as well as special awards for industry advancement, sustainable design, and all-precast concrete construction.
The PCI Design Awards recognize design excellence and construction quality using precast/prestressed concrete. The program demonstrates how designers are continuing to use precast/prestressed concrete construction to achieve sustainable, cost-effective, resilient and aesthetically versatile projects.
“The innovation of design, speed of construction and the functionality of precast/prestressed concrete are just a few of the qualities that made this year’s PCI Design Awards an outstanding competition,” said PCI President, Bob Risser.
The award-winning projects are listed below. Additional details and photos for each of these projects, as well as honorable mention winners, are available at http://www.pci.org/About_PCI/Awards/2016_Design_Awards/2016_Design_Award_Winners.
