Nominations are now being accepted for the 2017 Slag Cement Project of the Year Awards. Projects completed or scheduled to be completed between Jan. 1, 2016, and Dec. 31, 2017, are encouraged to apply before the Nov. 30 deadline. Winning projects will be honored at the American Concrete Institute’s Convention on March 25-29 in Salt Lake City.
“It is important to acknowledge the outstanding and innovative use of slag cement in projects across the United States,” said Ed Griffith, president of the Slag Cement Association (SCA). “The construction industry looks to these projects each year as examples of the increased durability, resilience and sustainability that slag cement brings to a concrete’s mix design.”
Projects will be recognized in the categories of architectural design, durability, green design, high performance, innovative design and sustainability. In addition to the in-person awards ceremony, winning projects also receive social media, digital and print recognition. The SCA works to promote this awards program and the winning projects as models for more durable and resilient concrete construction.
