ACEC California is gearing up to celebrate the 2020 recipients of its annual Engineering Excellence Awards on February 13, 2020 at The Downtown L.A. Grand Hotel. Projects will be recognized for demonstrating an exceptional degree of innovation, complexity, achievement and value.


Fifteen projects earned the prestigious Honor Award distinction, twenty-three were recognized with Merit Awards, and nine Commendation Awards will be granted. 


The winner of the Golden State Award, an honor bestowed on the best overall project, will be announced at the Engineering Excellence Awards dinner on February 13, 2020. The awards dinner is also a fundraiser for the ACEC California Scholarship Foundation 501(c)3, which provides scholarship awards to graduate and undergraduate students who are recognized for their notable and outstanding academic achievements. Honor Award winners are eligible to enter the national level Engineering Excellence Awards competition and will have photographic panels on display at the Capitol, outside of the Governor’s office, during National Engineers Week, in February 2020. 


To attend the event tickets, can be purchased here.
