The Walter Pyramid[2] in Long Beach, California, has won the Lifetime Achievement award from the American Galvanizers Association[3] (AGA).

This award is presented to projects with a minimum of 15 years in service. Located on Long Beach State University[4]’s campus, the Walter Pyramid is a 25-year-old landmark and collegiate sports facility. More than 500 tons of hot-dip galvanized steel was used in the construction of the pyramid to protect the structure from the humid California air.

Nearly 100 projects were submitted to the 2019 Excellence in Hot-dip Galvanizing Awards. A panel of judges made up of architects and engineers evaluated the projects online to determine the winners. The 2019 winners highlight the need for strength and longevity of hot-dip galvanized steel.
