Joist Design Awards Program Launched
Posted by Tom Klemens on July 20, 2010 at 9:06 AM.

The Steel Joist Institute is now accepting entries for its 2010 Design Awards. The winning entries will be announced in November 2010. A $2,000 scholarship will be awarded in each category in the name of the company with the winning project to the school of its choice to benefit an an engineering student.


Awards will be presented in three categories:

  • Industrial (i.e., distribution centers, warehouses and light manufacturing)
  • Non-industrial (i.e., office buildings, schools, and churches)
  • Unique applications (i.e., projects with a unique application of steel joists)


To enter a project, visit by August 2, 2010, for an online entry form and a complete listing of rules.


Projects must be located in the U.S., Canada or Mexico to be eligible, and the steel joists and/or joist girders must be manufactured by an active member of the Steel Joist Institute. A list of members can be found here.


Also, projects must have been constructed within the last three years. Eligible projects include new buildings and major retrofit or expansion projects. Companies can submit more than one entry, and each will be judged separately. Projects will be evaluated based on flexibility, speed of construction, value and aesthetic considerations.
