Did you recently work on an innovative steel building project? It’s not too late to enter it in AISC’s 2013 IDEAS2 Awards. The deadline for entries has been extended to tomorrow, February 7. The annual awards program, which has existed for more than seven decades, recognizes outstanding achievements in engineering and architecture on steel-framed building projects around the country.
The awards recognize all members of the project’s team involved with the structural framing system. This year’s winners will be announced at the 2013 NASCC: The Steel Conference in St. Louis, which will be held April 17-19. In addition, awards are presented by AISC to the submitting firms and their fellow project team members at the individual project sites during the summer, and all winning projects will be featured in the May issue of MSC.
Architectural and engineering firms, general contractors, fabricators and owners are encouraged to enter innovative building projects that use wide-flange or hollow structural steel sections for a significant portion of the framing system. Pedestrian bridges entered in the competition must be an intrinsic part of a building, not stand-alone structures. Any member of the project team may submit a project for consideration, and joint submittals from project teams are encouraged.
To be eligible, projects must be located within the U.S. and completed between January 1, 2010, and December 31, 2012. If any member of the project team is an AISC member, there is no entry fee. (The entry fee is $150 for non-members.)
