Innovation Awards Application FAQs

Awards program description: The UHPC Innovation Awards will recognize and highlight the creativity and innovative UHPC design, excellence in fabrication, or construction technique. A panel of qualified Judges will select entries to receive Awards for construction projects in the categories of Buildings or Infrastructure. If they deem it appropriate the Judges may; but are not required to, create additional award categories. Awards will be presented based on the merits of the project and how well the nominee documents design features and or use of UHPC.
