The Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute is proud to announce the results of their biennial CRSI HONORS design and construction awards program. Ten projects were selected to receive recognition from the numerous entries submitted.
Project entries were evaluated on the basis of Satisfaction of owner objectives, Development of innovative solutions, Maximizing project value, Effective use of reinforced concrete, and Overall aesthetics. Seven submittals received a premier HONORS Award while three received Merit Certificate recognition.
For over 50 years, CRSI has recognized design and construction achievement by owners, architects, engineers, and construction managers across North America. Submittals can be made by anyone in the design/construction team. This cycle’s entries represent a wide range of project types from all regions of the United States. Each of the selections demonstrates an excellence in leveraging reinforcing steel’s inherencies as a part of the world’s most popular building material.
All the recognized projects will be considered for case studies and for other promotions showcasing steel reinforced concrete construction. The Institute is pleased to acknowledge all these unique and successful projects.
