  • Structural Engineering Excellence (SEE) Awards

Background: The Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC), is respected as an authoritative leader in the practice of structural and earthquake engineering. SEAOC, through its members, seeks to advance the state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice of structural engineering; provide the public with safe and robust structures; disseminate relevant information and tools to the structural engineering profession for structural analysis and design. The Association strives to educate members in effective business management and serve as a respected and proactive voice in structural code and standard development processes. These lofty goals can only be accomplished through the actions of SEAOC members, usually through project work. Exemplary stewards of the SEAOC vision deserve recognition when exemplifying outstanding engineering.

Program: The Structural Engineering Excellence (SEE) Awards Program is an annual event that celebrates the significant structural engineering achievements of its members. The local and state awards ceremonies are key opportunities for SEAOSC and SEAOC to recognize the successful work of its members.

Call for Entries: California-based design teams are encouraged to submit eligible projects to the Annual SEE Awards Program for consideration. Entrants will submit projects through SEAONC, SEAOSC, SEAOCC or SEAOSD, as appropriate per their regional MO affiliation. MO Awards will be recognized during the annual MO Awards ceremony. Projects receiving an Award of Excellence at their MO ceremony will automatically be entered in the SEAOC SEE awards program and recognized at a ceremony at the annual SEAOC Convention.
