Award-Winning Steel Joist Projects Named
Posted by Alison Trost on November 24, 2010 at 10:00 PM.

The Steel Joist Institute has announced the winners of its 2010 Design Awards, which are presented in three categories. This year’s winners are:


  • Industrial: Burrough-Brasuell Corp. for its structural retrofit work on The Allen Canning Co.’s 132,500-sq.-ft food processing plant in Van Buren, Ark.
  • Non-industrial: Unified Building Sciences & Engineering for its work on the 400,000-sq.-ft Hallsville Senior High School in Hallsville, Texas, to provide fine arts, science, career and technical education, and academic facilities.
  • Unique: Steel Encounters Co. for its work on the environmentally friendly Star Wash Eco Car Wash in South Jordan, Utah.


Projects were judged based on flexibility, speed of construction, value and aesthetic considerations. The three winning companies each received a $2,000 scholarship in their name to a school of their choice for an engineering student. The joists for all of this year’s prize-winning projects were manufactured by Vulcraft.
