The deadline for submitting a Notice of Intention to Enter the 2013 Canadian Consulting Engineering Awards is Thursday, March 14.
To reflect the growing excitement that these awards generate, this year the number of awards of excellence has been expanded to 20. Now there is even more chance for your firm to win!
A number of Special Awards will be designated by the jury from among projects entered in all categories. These Special Awards include the following:
• Schreyer Award. This is the highest honour and is presented annually to the best technical entry.
• Tree for Life Award (Prix Un Arbre à Aimer). The award is given annually to a project that demonstrates outstanding environmental stewardship.
The winners are announced and presented at a gala dinner in Ottawa in October. While in Ottawa for the gala, representatives of the winning firms may be invited to Parliament Hill for meetings with Members of Parliament as part of ACEC’s government relations program. One of ACEC's roles is to advocate on behalf of the consulting engineering sector.
Now in their 45th year, the awards are run by the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies - Canada (ACEC) and Canadian Consulting Engineer magazine and are the most prestigious mark of recognition for consulting engineers in Canada. They are given to projects that demonstrate a high quality of engineering, imagination and innovation.
The awards are an unequalled opportunity to gain recognition for your firm and your employees. The list of winners is publicized nationwide and the projects are published in the October-November issue of Canadian Consulting Engineer.
Eligible projects must have been completed in the period from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2012.
