Post-tensioning Institute Seeks Entries for 2019 PTI Project Awards

The Post-Tensioning Institute (PTI) recently announced the opening of its 2019 PTI Project Awards cycle, through December 31, 2018

PTI presents The PTI Project Award every two years. The awards recognize excellence in post-tensioning applications in the following categories: buildings, bridges, parking structures, slab-on-ground, industrial/special applications, and repair/rehabilitation/strengthening. Any structure that uses post-tensioning as a structural component, was constructed or rehabilitated in the past seven years, and was not entered into the 2017 PTI Project Awards is eligible. Owners, architects, engineers, contractors, or post-tensioning suppliers can all submit entries.

The judges that select winners are a jury of distinguished industry professionals. They judge entries on creativity, innovation, ingenuity, cost-effectiveness, functionality, constructability, and aesthetics. Awards will be available in each category. The awards presentation happens during the PTI Awards Dinner on Monday, May 6, 2019. This takes place at the 2019 PTI Convention in Seattle, Wash.

In 2017, 13 projects were recognized and the coveted PTI Project of the Year Award was presented to Baldridge & Associates Structural Engineering (BASE) for its project, The Ritz-Carlton Residences Waikiki Beach, Phase 1, located in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The PTI will accept entries for the 2019 PTI Projects Awards through December 31, 2018. All entry information and instructions is available via PTI’s website.
