The Awards for Engineering Excellence demonstrate the value of member firms to clients as they celebrate technical excellence and recognize innovation in engineering that is simply a cut above the rest.  The Awards have grown more prestigious since the inception of the program 26 years ago, raising the profile of the recipients to new heights. They provide ACEC-British Columbia members the opportunity to showcase their projects and their firm to the consulting engineering industry.

Awards are granted in the following categories:

  • Buildings
  • Municipal & Civil Infrastructure
  • Transportation & Bridges
  • Energy & Industry
  • Natural Resource & Habitat

For each of these categories one Award of Excellence and at least one Award of Merit is presented every year. The Lieutenant Governor's Award will be given to the submission that excels in all areas of the rated criteria, and will be chosen from among the Award of Excellence recipients.
