PCI announces 2023 precast/prestressed concrete design awards winners

The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) has announced the winners of the 2023 PCI Design awards. Three panels of jurors awarded 25 winners, including eight honorable mentions for the special buildings and transportation categories.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the PCI Design awards program, which recognizes creative and innovative uses of precast concrete. The panel consists of engineers, architects, and precast concrete producers. The buildings and transportation categories are judged on aesthetic, structural, and versatility; site, energy and operational efficiency, and risk reduction; and resiliency, such as structure durability, multi-hazard protection, and life safety and health.

Several projects are also honored with special awards, based on similar criteria to the building and transportation projects, but with additional requirements, including industry advancement, sustainable design, technology, and designs using all-precast concrete solutions. These are the Harry H. Edwards Industry Advancement award, the Building Information Modeling (BIM) award, the Sustainable Design award, and the All-Precast Concrete Solution award.

Winning projects will be recognized February 24 at the 2022 PCI Convention in Columbus, Ohio.

“We are once again thrilled to recognize the tremendous capabilities of the precast concrete industry to meet the needs of the built environment, especially on this milestone 60th anniversary of the program,” said PCI president and CEO Bob Risser, PE. “Congratulations to all the winners, and thanks to the jurors and PCI staff who make the program a success. Through the past 60 years, the precast concrete industry continues to innovate and improve, and these exemplary projects are the latest examples of that.”

Founded in 1954, the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) is a technical institute for the precast concrete structures and systems industry. PCI develops, maintains, and disseminates the body of knowledge for the design, fabrication, and construction of precast concrete structures and systems. PCI members include precast concrete producers, erectors, suppliers, professional engineers, and architects.
