Engineering Excellence Projects Stand Out for Innovation, Complexity

The American Council of Engineering Companies, California (ACEC California) announced the 2022 recipients of its annual Engineering Excellence Awards. Projects were recognized for demonstrating an exceptional degree of innovation, complexity, achievement and value. Of the awards, 16 projects earned the prestigious Honor Award distinction, 20 were recognized with Merit Awards and 10 Commendation Awards were granted.

“These ACEC California engineering firms are being honored for their exceptional degree of innovation, intricacy, accomplishment and value,” said Brad Diede, executive director of ACEC California. “Californians deserve a reliable drinking water supply, safe and efficient transportation systems along with safe bicycle and pedestrian routes, structurally sound stadiums and residential buildings, and better infrastructure on all fronts. Our firms are committed to building a better California.”

The winner of the Golden State Award, an honor bestowed on the best overall project, will be announced at the Engineering Excellence Awards virtual celebration February 3, 2022. The awards celebration is also a fundraiser for the ACEC California Scholarship Foundation 501(c)3, which provides scholarship awards to graduate and undergraduate students who are recognized for outstanding academic achievements.
