The prestigious AISC IDEAS2 awards program each year produces some of the most visually stunning images of recently completed steel structures, and now you can view all of the 2011 winners in a gallery of photos on the MSC web site at http://bit.ly/nMoNZC or www.modernsteel.com/photos. The gallery provides shareable links to slideshow presentations of each of the 2011 award winners, which include multiple images and descriptions of the project, as well as a list of the project team members.
Throughout the year, members of each project team are presented with awards from AISC, typically in a ceremony presentation at the project location. Next week, two of this year’s winning projects — both located in New York — will be presented with awards: The Gateway Center at Westchester Community College in Valhalla, N.Y. on Monday, September 19; and 510 Madison Avenue Tower in New York City on Wednesday, September 21.
The awards presentations will take place the week of SteelDay (September 23). On SteelDay, AISC is hosting an NYC event at McGraw-Hill headquarters in Midtown Manhattan. It includes a networking lunch followed by a panel discussion on award-winning steel-framed buildings in NYC — all recent recipients of AISC’s IDEAS2 Award. Panelists will share their views on trends and issues shaping New York’s building construction scene now and in the future. Afterward, guests will take a site tour of the nearby International Gem Tower project currently under construction. Guests may register for this event and all SteelDay events at www.steelday.org/events. Select New York in the drop-down search menu. From there, select the event “SteelDay Luncheon, Panel Presentation and Site Tour” and register.
