CRSI Opens 2020 HONORS Awards Program

The Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI) announces the kickoff of the popular and structures recognition program. The window for submitting entries is open from March 16 to June 1, 2020.

For 50 years CRSI has recognized excellence in the design and construction of concrete buildings and bridges. Project achievements will inspire prospective clientele and tomorrow’s design and construction leaders.

The 2020 CRSI HONORS program is open to all project team members including owners, designers, builders and structural material suppliers.

Eligible structures utilize reinforced concrete as the primary structural system, are located in the United States, Canada, or Mexico and must be completed between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2019.

HONORS submittals are reviewed for the ways steel reinforced concrete is leveraged in an innovative or exceptional manner to improve the structure’s value, sustainability, appearance and durability. Design and/or construction approaches to which ultimate outcome objectives are achieved are also considered.

Project categories include:

  • Residential & Hotel
  • Commercial & Mixed-Use
  • Cultural & Entertainment
  • Transportation
  • Educational
  • Federal/State/Municipal
  • Healthcare

Due to their entry in the HONORS program, many of the projects receive exposure in Institute promotions for steel reinforced concrete design and construction. Many entries become case studies on the CRSI website, as well as referenced in our popular university and professional development programs.

Submitting an entry for this respected award is quick and convenient! Visit the CRSI HONORS website at honors.crsi.org for complete details. Participation is FREE for Members.
