2022 ASA Outstanding Shotcrete Project Awards

The American Shotcrete Association (ASA) is proud to announce the recipients of its 2022 Outstanding Shotcrete Project Awards. The recipients were honored at the 18th Annual ASA Awards Banquet. This banquet took place in conjunction with ASA’s 2023 ASA Shotcrete Convention and Technology, on February 28, 2023, at the Ojai Valley Inn, Ojai, CA. These awards confirm and demonstrate the exceptional advantages of shotcrete placement of concrete.

“It was great to be in Ojai enjoying the in-person interaction with our members. The Awards Banquet was the highlight of our 3-day ASA Convention and Technical Conference and a fitting finale to recognize the 2022 shotcrete projects that are truly outstanding. The award winners exemplify how shotcrete placement creates high-quality, durable concrete construction in a wide variety of structural applications. The projects demonstrate the inherent benefits of shotcrete, including enhanced sustainability, creativity, efficiency, strength, and flexibility,” said Charles Hanskat, ASA Executive Director.

The winners were selected by an awards committee comprised of shotcrete professionals who dedicated their time and expertise.
