A panel of judges awarded 26 projects and 12 honorable mentions for design excellence in building and transportation categories for the institute’s 2021 PCI Design Awards.

The panel of industry experts that includes engineers, architects, and precast concrete producers judges all nominees. The buildings and transportation categories are judged on aesthetic, structural, and use versatility; site, energy, and operational efficiency, and risk reduction; and resiliency, such as structure durability, multi-hazard protection, and life safety and health.
“Once again, the precast concrete industry has put its best foot forward and has delivered many inspiring and impressive projects,” said PCI president Bob Risser, PE. “Each year, the PCI Design Awards program demonstrates that precast concrete is not only a practical solution to many construction challenges, but also a head-turning aesthetic solution.”
