The Awards Committee administers ACEC/MA’s annual Engineering Excellence Awards program and is in charge of other ACEC/MA awards. The EEA program recognizes engineering firms for projects that demonstrate a high degree of achievement, value and ingenuity. Entrants are rated by an independent panel of judges from the architectural community, the construction industry, academia, the media, and the public sector on the basis of uniqueness and originality; future value to the profession and perception by the public; social, economic and sustainable development considerations; complexity; and successful fulfillment of the client/owner’s need, including schedule and budget. The EEA Committee plans, coordinates, and administers the annual Call for Entries and the judging process. The EEA Committee assists the EEA Event Committee in planning the annual Awards Gala. In addition, the EEA Committee coordinates the EEA Road Show that displays winning projects in prominent locations throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts following the Awards Gala.
