Do you know of a great public concrete project that should be recognized for its innovative approach to concrete design and construction? We are currently searching for potential winners of the Hanley Wood Triad Awards. The winning project will be selected based on the project team’s demonstration of innovation, sustainability, and leadership. The winning projects will have been constructed using a team approach, including the owner, the concrete contractor (or the general contractor), and the concrete materials producer. Innovations can be in the design, use of materials, or construction techniques.

Project must be located in North America, must be completed or scheduled for completion between 1/1/2014 and 1/1/2016, and must be owned or commissioned for use by a public entity. Examples include transportation facilities (bridge, terminal, highway, port, airport), water/wastewater facilities, public buildings, memorials, publicly owned sports facilities, and parks.

A winning project and two runners-up will be selected. An editor will visit the winning project to interview team members for a feature article that will appear in PUBLIC WORKS, CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION, and THE CONCRETE PRODUCER. Deadline for entry is December 18. Articles will appear in the print magazines in February or March.

The entry process is simple and easy. No long forms, just tell us a little about the project and we will develop the needed information. Provide the following information:
