Until September 21, the Canadian Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (CPCI) Ontario Concrete Awards will be open for submissions. Projects employing cast-in-place or precast concrete are accepted and will be judged for architectural merit, creativity, engineering quality, innovation, complexity, and functionality.
Winners will fall under one of the following categories within the divisions of architectural, structural, materials and constructability, and sustainability:
- architectural merit;
- architectural flooring or hardscape;
- mid- or high-rise residential;
- institutional building;
- structural design innovation;
- material development and innovation;
- specialty concrete construction; and
- sustainable concrete construction.
To be eligible, projects must have been completed within 36 months of the deadline, and must be submitted by a senior project team member such as the architect, structural engineer, or general contractor. As a general rule, only projects located within Ontario will be considered. However, an eligibility exception is made for projects that are located elsewhere, but employ precast produced in Ontario and involve an architect or engineer of record located in the province.
