The Steel Erectors Association of America is conducting its 16th Annual Project of the Year national competition. Besides free publicity and peer and industry recognition, one previous recipient of the award says it gives employees and ironworkers a sense of pride in the company.
“At the worker level, there can be sameness to the work—same welds, same connections, same steel, project after project. This is proof that we are better than the other guys. Having done the job well, safely and on schedule to a level that garnered national recognition—gives our workers a sense of pride and makes them partners in our efforts to maintain quality,” said Kurt Hettinger of S.L. Shaw Company Inc., Bakersfield, Calif.
If your company topped out a steel erection project in 2018 or 2019, submit your application for SEAA Project of the Year Award using a simple online submission form and supporting documents. There is no cost for SEAA members to submit an application.
Winners are recognized during Awards Ceremony at the SEAA National Convention & Trade Show. Your team is invited to make a presentation about the project and to join a panel discussion with other convention attendees.
The winner in each of the four Class categories will be featured in an in-depth profile article in The SEAA Connector® magazine, the official publication of SEAA.
SEAA is looking for steel erection projects by member firms that demonstrated complexity of the project or unusual conditions, issues and barriers requiring special management team action or performance. The competition is open to projects completed between January 1, 2018, and December 31, 2019.
Deadline for nominations is March 1, 2020.
