Each year, the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute chooses the projects from the previous year that represent the best the precast concrete industry has to offer. A panel of experts that includes precast concrete producers, engineers, and architects judges all the submissions. Each submission is scored on different categories include aesthetic, structural and use versatility; site, energy and operational efficiency; risk reduction; and resiliency.

PCI Gulf South is happy to see that several of our producers have numerous projects that were selected for the 2019 PCI Design Awards. The 2019 winners are listed below with details on each project.
