Every year, AISC’s IDEAS2 Awards recognize the most innovative new steel structures in the U.S. and the importance of teamwork, coordination and collaboration in fostering successful construction projects.


This year’s 13 IDEAS2 winners were announced at the 2013 NASCC: The Steel Conference last month in St. Louis. Covering an array of project types, they demonstrate the flexible and effective solutions provided by structural steel on a wide variety of building projects.


A panel of design and construction industry professionals identified National and Merit winners in three categories, based on constructed value: less than $15 million, $15 million to $75 million and greater than $75 million. In addition, the panel awarded a Presidential Award of Excellence in Engineering to one project for outstanding structural engineering achievement.


You can read about all of this year’s winners in the May issue of MSC (available now!), with detailed project descriptions and photographs of each.
