CRSI Honors

Welcome to CRSI HONORS.

For 50 years, the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute has used the CRSI Design Awards program to proudly recognize innovative reinforced concrete structures throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Now, the CRSI HONORS Design and Construction Awards program raises the proverbial bar. HONORS submittals are reviewed in particular on the ways in which reinforced concrete has been leveraged by professionals to improve the structure’s value, sustainability, appearance and durability. Consideration is also given to design and/or construction approaches that leverage steel reinforced concrete in an innovative manner or to an exceptional degree, and on the basis of the extent to which ultimate outcome objectives were achieved.

CRSI wants to recognize your successful outcomes!

Selected entries will be promoted globally over the next two years as case examples through university lectures, regional seminars and digital communications. Your achievement will inspire both prospective clientele and well as students and young professionals seeking to become tomorrow's design and construction leaders.
