ACEC Virginia Presents
The American Council of Engineering Companies of Virginia proudly presents the 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards and Gala, recognizing engineering firms for projects that demonstrate an exceptional degree of innovation, complexity, achievement, and value.
We are currently contracted at The Jefferson Hotel but due to COVID-19, we are monitoring the status of this event for in-person.
ACEC Virginia firms have entered and won for some of the most innovative projects for the EEA Gala, and we cannot wait to see the projects entered for 2021.
EEA entries are accepted into one of 9 project categories: studies, research, and consulting engineering services; building/technology systems; structural systems; surveying and mapping technology; environmental; waste and stormwater; water resources; transportation; surveying, mapping, small projects; energy; and industrial and manufacturing processes and facilities. A distinguished panel of judges is assembled to critique and rank the submissions for engineering excellence. Projects from throughout the state are rated based on uniqueness and innovative applications; future value to the engineering profession; perception by the public; social, economic, and sustainable development considerations; complexity; and successful fulfillment of client/owner’s needs, including schedule and budget.
“We’re consistently surprised by the ingenuity displayed in the projects of firms throughout the Commonwealth. These projects make a noticeable difference in our communities,” said Nancy Israel, Executive Director of ACEC Virginia. “The judges noted that Innovation stole the show, explaining how entering firms demonstrated the use of innovations and current technology in ever-changing ways.”
