Engineering Achievement Awards
Civil engineering achievements for projects located within the geographical area of the Wisconsin Section are recognized annually by awarding the “Engineering Achievement Awards.” The awards are given for the achievement, not to an individual, so that the many engineers who have worked on the particular projects are recognized as having contributed. The basis for the awards within each category is “an engineering project that demonstrates excellence in engineering skills and represents a significant contribution to engineering progress and society.
Awards shall be made in the following categories:
- Category A: Construction Cost Under $2M
- Category B: Construction Cost Over $2M and Under $10M
- Category C: Construction Cost Over $10M and Under $20M
- Category D: Construction Cost Over $20M
The awards are made annually for engineering projects that fall into the general category of civil engineering. Only engineering and construction achievements within the geographic confines of the Wisconsin Section are eligible.
The basis for the awards within each category is “an engineering project that demonstrates excellence in engineering skills and represents a significant contribution to engineering progress and society.” In making the selection, the following criteria will form the basis of the evaluation by the Jury of Judges: service to the well-being of people and communities; uniqueness; pioneering aspects in design and construction; economy in initial costs and/or operation and maintenance cost; exceptional use of materials; and a balanced regard for utilitarian and aesthetic values.
