Engineering Excellence

An ACEC New York hallmark for over 50 years, the Engineering Excellence Awards gala — the Academy Awards” of the consulting engineering industry—is held annually in the spring to honor member firms for design achievements of superior skill and ingenuity.

Each year, over 60 firms submit projects that are judged on a rigorous set of criteria, which includes complexity, innovation and value to society. In addition to celebrating among peers, the EEA helps to publicize the many significant contributions consulting engineers make to the built environment throughout the world.

Preliminary entries are now closed for the 2021 Engineering Excellence Awards. Information on final submissions has been sent to firms.

Final entries are due September 23. Late entries will be accepted until September 30 with a $100 fee. Want to know how to improve your final entries? View the recording of the "Preparing to Win" webinar.

EEA 2020 Gala Going Virtual


Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Engineering Excellence Gala event, originally scheduled to take place on April 4 in New York City, was postponed. Since that time, we have been considering options to recognize our winners while still prioritizing the safety of our attendees. After considering many practical possibilities, the ACEC New York Board of Directors and the Engineering Excellence Awards committee have approved a virtual event to replace the live event for 2020. This virtual event will take place on November 18 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM. The virtual event will be accessible to all members and clients. More details on the event, including connection information, will be provided soon. All award plaques and glass awards will be shipped; more information on shipping will be provided closer to the event date. We thank all our members and award recipients for their patience, and we look forward to celebrating these accomplishments together.
