CHICAGO – The highest total precast concrete building in the world, a single-family precast concrete home on a scenic lake, and a bridge at one of the nation’s busiest airports are some of the winning project highlights of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute’s 2022 PCI Design Awards. Three panels of jurors honored 29 winners and 13 honorable mentions for design excellence in the buildings and transportation categories.

For the past 59 years, the PCI Design Awards have showcased and recognized the creative and innovative use 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.

“While many construction professionals already realize that precast concrete is durable, resilient, cost-effective, and functional, the PCI Design Awards reminds everyone that precast concrete also is aesthetically breathtaking in many ways and in a variety of applications,” said PCI President and CEO Bob Risser, P.E. “Each year, I continue to be amazed at the beauty and quality of the projects that are submitted and honored.”

Winning projects will be recognized on March 4 at the 2022 PCI Convention in Kansas City, Mo.
