Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute Announces 2021 PCI Design Awards Winners in Illinois and Kentucky

CHICAGO, IL — The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Insitutute’s 2021 PCI Design Awards were recently announced. Judges awarded 26 projects and 12 honorable mentions for design excellence in building and transportation categories.

“Once again, the precast concrete industry has put its best foot forward and has delivered many inspiring and impressive projects,” said PCI President and CEO Bob Risser, P.E. “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.”

The PCI Design Awards have showcased and recognized the creative and innovative use of precast concrete for the past 58 years. Nominees are judged by a panel of industry experts that includes engineers, architects, and precast concrete producers. 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.

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

All winning projects will be showcased and honored at the 2021 PCI Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana, with an event on May 21. The following two projects in the Construction Digest area won awards in the Buildings category:
