SAINT PAUL, MN — The International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) announces the winners of its 2019 Project Awards. The Ile-aux-Tourtes Bridge Rehabilitation was chosen as the ICRI 2019 Project of the Year. This year, three finalists were chosen, and the winner was announced at an awards ceremony.

ICRI awarded seven additional 2019 Awards of Excellence and seven Awards of Merit. The following projects won awards in the Constructioneer area:
Parking Structures Category: The Promenade Apartments
This New York City-based project was submitted by Sika Corporation. Years of neglect had caused water infiltration throughout the structural decks of The Promenade Apartments. Significant deterioration of structural slabs and steel beams had taken place. Areas in the parking garage were repeatedly failing, and the steel beams connecting the pedestrian bridge to the garage were rusted. The renovation of the apartment was a complete transformation and full-scale refurbishment of the 33-story building. That included a newly renovated lobby, new security system, an electronically monitored package delivery system, full renovations of the apartments and hallways and renovation of the plaza deck and parking garage.
Special Projects Category: Eisenhower Barracks at West Point
This West Point, New York-based project was submitted by STRUCTURAL. Originally built in 1968, the Eisenhower Barracks were beginning to succumb to the universal factors that plague buildings in need of repair -— time and use. Throughout the entire project, the team collaborated on the design, material supply and creation of a specialized strengthening solution for the historic barracks on the military campus. The team was able to strengthen 99 beams in total by adding new shear capitals and installing roughly 90,000 square feet of CFRP. In addition to the strengthening work, the wall, ceiling and beam slabs were also repaired.

ICRI, a nonprofit association with more than 2,400 members worldwide, is a resource for education and information to improve the quality of repair, restoration and protection of concrete and other structures in accordance with consensus criteria.
