The PCI Design Awards recognize the creative and innovative use of precast concrete. PCI says 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.
“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,” PCI President and CEO Bob Risser, P.E., said in a statement. “Each year, I continue to be amazed at the beauty and quality of the projects that are submitted and honored.”
