Abstract:
The Post-Tensioning Institute (PTI), Phoenix, AZ, reinstated its Structure Awards Competition in 2003 -- the first one PTI has held since 1987 -- with plans to continue the program as an annual event. Winners are chosen in five categories and seven projects received honorable mention. In general, any structure constructed or rehabilitated that substantially used post-tensioning as a structural component and was completed in the last 5 years was eligible. Award categories include Buildings, Parking Structures, Strengthening/Rehabilitation, Bridges, and Industrial/Special Applications. Entries were judged on their individual merits for creativity, innovation, ingenuity, cost-effectiveness, functionality, constructibility, and aesthetics.
