12 building projects win steel design awards

February 2, 2018 - A dozen structural steel projects have earned recognition in the 2018 Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel awards program (IDEAS2). Conducted annually by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), the IDEAS2 award is the highest honor bestowed on building projects by the U.S. structural steel industry and recognizes excellence and innovation in the use of structural steel on building projects across the country. The winning projects and their respective team members will be recognized at the 2018 NASCC: The Steel Conference, April 11-13 in Baltimore.

“We celebrate these projects and appreciate the savvy, creative people behind them for showcasing the beauty and usefulness of structural steel,” said Charles J. Carter, SE, PE, PhD, president of AISC. “Our hearty congratulations to the award-winning teams for a great compilation of excellent solutions!”

A panel of design and construction industry professionals identified National and Merit winners in three categories, based on total constructed value: projects greater than $75 million; projects $15 million to $75 million; and projects less than $15 million. In addition, the panel awarded a Presidential Award of Excellence in Engineering to two projects for structural engineering accomplishment.

The 2018 award-winning projects are:

The 12 IDEAS2 winners were chosen from nearly 100 submissions received from architectural, engineering and construction firms throughout the U.S. Each project was judged on its use of structural steel from both an architectural and structural engineering perspective, with an emphasis on: creative solutions to the project’s program requirements; applications of innovative design approaches in areas such as connections, gravity systems, lateral load resisting systems, fire protection and blast; aesthetic and visual impact of the project; innovative use of architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS); technical or architectural advances in the use of the steel; and the use of innovative design and construction methods.

The IDEAS2 program also recognizes the importance of teamwork, coordination and collaboration in fostering successful construction projects. Awards for each winning project will be presented to the project team members involved in the design and construction of the structural framing system, including the architect, structural engineer of record, general contractor, owner and AISC member fabricator, erector, detailer and bender-roller. The awards are presented to the team members at ceremonies held at each of the winning projects during the year.
