Welcome to the CRSI Honors Program

For over 50 years, the Concrete Reinforcing SteelCRSI Honors logo Institute has used the CRSI Design Awards program to proudly recognize innovative reinforced concrete structures throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Now, the CRSI HONORS Design and Construction Awards program raises the proverbial bar. HONORS submittals are reviewed specifically on the ways in which reinforced concrete has been utilized to improve the structure’s value, sustainability, appearance and durability. Consideration is also given to design and/or construction approaches that leverage steel reinforced concrete in an innovative manner or to an exceptional degree, and on the basis of the extent to which ultimate outcome objectives were achieved.

Your submittal has the potential to be used in case studies, technical, and promotional materials to demonstrate the flexibility, resiliency, sustainability, and lasting attributes of beautifully designed and constructed reinforced concrete structures.

Questions about submitting? Please contact Dave Mounce, Senior Director of Communications & Outreach.
