Benefits and knowledge our members can expect to take away from the presentation:

  • An understanding of the new ACI “Excellence in Concrete” program

  • An understanding of the key structural design and construction features of two award winning projects  

Concrete is an increasingly versatile, efficient, and dominant construction material. To identify and honor projects that best exemplify concrete excellence worldwide, and to recognize the design and construction firms who create them, ACI in 2015 conducted their inaugural international awards competition. The “Excellence in Concrete” program has been held annually since and has rapidly become one of the most successful initiatives in recent ACI history. It has also helped increase public awareness of the beauty and versatility of concrete. 

 Our February program will feature highlights of this exciting new ACI initiative. This will include presentation of the 2018 ACI International EIC video featuring award-winning concrete projects from around the country and the world. Also featured will be two local Washington award-winning projects from the 2016 and 2017 events. The background, key features, and key players will be discussed, as well as interesting engineering and construction aspects of each project.
