Being excellent isn’t easy,but engineers do it every day. Each year ACEC Tennessee provides 13 opportunities to put the spotlight on your projects at the Engineering Excellence Awards. The competition recognizes engineering firms for work that demonstrates a high degree of achievement,value, and ingenuity. The Grand Iris Award is considered “Best in Show” and is presented to the project judged to be the best overall in competition. 12 additional awards are handed out in each of the 12 project categories.
