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
  • Soft Engineering

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. 

ACEC-British Columbia also recognizes the accomplishments of two individual consulting engineers with the annual presentation of the Meritorious Achievement Award and the Young Professional Award.

The ACEC-BC Chairman's Award recognizes an individual for exceptional support of British Columbia’s Consulting Engineering community and the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies - British Columbia.

New in 2016 is the presentation of the Client of the Year Award - recognizing the most outstanding Clients of ACEC-BC members, and promoting and encouraging best practices by Clients.

These extraordinary accomplishments are acknowledged by peers, colleagues and competitors at the Awards for Engineering Excellence Gala which is our premiere professional and social event of the year.
