The National Council of Structural Engineers Associations (NCSEA) is pleased to publish the winners of the 2019 Excellence in Structural Engineering Awards. The awards were announced on the evening of November 14 at NCSEA’s 27th annual Structural Engineering Summit in Anaheim, California. Given annually since 1998, each year the entries highlight work from the best and brightest in our profession.

Awards were given in seven categories, with one project in each category named the Outstanding Project. The categories for 2019 were as follows:

New Buildings under $20 Million

New Buildings $20 Million to $100 Million

New Buildings over $100 Million

New Bridge and Transportation Structures

Forensic | Renovation | Retrofit | Rehabilitation Structures up to $20 Million

Forensic | Renovation | Retrofit | Rehabilitation Structures over $20 Million

The 2019 Awards Committee was chaired by Carrie Johnson (Wallace Engineering, Tulsa OK). Ms. Johnson noted: “We had two rounds of judging to allow the judges more time to focus on each individual project. The preliminary round was performed via electronic voting by a group of NCSEA Past Presidents and the final round was done in Austin, Texas, by engineers from the Structural Engineers Association of Texas (SEAoT). The judges had an enormous task of trying to determine winners from an impressive group of submittals. The group of winning projects is outstanding.”

Please join NCSEA and STRUCTURE® magazine in congratulating all the winners. More in-depth articles on several of the 2019 winners will appear in the Spotlight section of the magazine over the 2020 editorial year.
