The Awards for Engineering Excellence demonstrate the value ACEC-BC member firms offer 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 30 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 presented in the following categories:

  • Buildings
  • Municipal & Civil Infrastructure
  • Transportation & Bridges
  • Energy & Industry
  • Natural Resource & Habitat
  • Soft Engineering
  • Projects Under $2.5 Million

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