The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute announced recently the winners of the 2024 PCI Design Awards representing an array of U.S. and international building and transportation projects. 

The 19 winners include an office building in South Dakota, a temple in Utah, a replacement bridge in Maryland and the U.S. Embassy Compound in Mozambique. Winning projects were recognized at the 2024 PCI Convention in Denver. 

“This year again proved how exceptional precast concrete projects are, what the precast concrete industry has achieved and how it will continue to advance and enhance the built environment,” said PCI President and CEO Bob Risser, PE. “The judges this year were incredibly impressed by the quality of each submission and the amount of care that went into creating a story for each project.” 

For more than 60 years, the PCI Design Awards program has showcased and recognized “creative and innovative uses of precast concrete,” according to the PCI press release announcing the winners and honorable mentions. Panels of engineers, architects and precast concrete producers judge all submittals. The buildings and transportation categories are judged on aesthetic, structural and use versatility; site, energy and operational efficiency and risk reduction; and resiliency, such as structure durability, multi-hazard protection and life safety and health.  

Several projects were also honored with special awards: the Harry H. Edwards Industry Advancement Award, the Building Information Modeling (BIM) Award, the Sustainable Design Award and the All-Precast Concrete Solution Award. According to PCI, these are judged on similar criteria to the building and transportation projects, as well as additional requirements, including industry advancement, sustainable design, technology and designs using all-precast concrete solutions.  

Here are this year’s winners.
