Engineering Excellence Awards – Silver and Bronze Awards

About the Engineering Excellence Awards

A distinguished panel of judges representing industry, government, academia and media assembled to critique and rank the submissions for engineering excellence. Projects were rated on the basis of uniqueness and innovative applications; future value to the engineering profession; perception by the public; social, economic, and sustainable development considerations; complexity; and successful fulfillment of client/owner’s needs, including schedule and budget.

The panel for 2014 consisted of “engineer emeritus” Jeff Daggett, P.E., FACEC, who served as the lead judge; Butch Brooks, President of AGC of Washington and Brooks Construction Management; Debbie Sullivan, Assistant Public Works Director, City of Olympia; Michael Terrell, Major Projects Director, Seattle Department of Transportation; Ben Minnick, A & E Editor, Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce.
