The Plastics Pipe Institute, Inc. (PPI) announced today that submissions for its Project of the Year program are now being accepted, and that the deadline has been extended to March 30, 2023.  PPI is the major North American trade association representing the plastic pipe industry.  Each PPI division will present the award to its winning member company at the PPI annual membership meeting that will be held in Maui, Hawaii in May.  Submissions are reviewed, evaluated and voted upon by the PPI members. 

“This is a time-honored and highly anticipated event,” stated PPI President David M. Fink.  “For nearly 15 years it has showcased exceptional projects as a way of fulfilling PPI’s goal to educate the industry on the benefits that plastic pipe can bring to a project.  We believe that plastic pipe is a solution to many of the infrastructure problems facing our world today, and we know our members will be submitting some great projects that explain the solutions to these problems.”

PPI divisions are Building & Construction, Drainage, Energy Piping Systems, Municipal & Industrial, and Power & Communications.

“After every award event we hear from the presidents of the winning companies that having one of their pipe systems named Project of the Year by their peers is high praise indeed,” Fink elaborated.  “Not only does it increase awareness for their company and products, it provides a platform for educating the industry.  Even companies that have won a number of times continue to nominate their best and most interesting projects.”

Fink observed that it is not easy to win.  “Typically, we have many entries, which are reviewed and voted on by the members.  These are experienced professionals who take that responsibility very seriously and bestow the honor on only the most deserving project.”
