Engineering Excellence Awards

ACEC Colorado’s Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) program annually recognizes consulting engineering firms for projects that demonstrate an exceptional degree of innovation, complexity, achievement, and value.  For more than 60 years, Colorado firms have entered their most innovative projects and studies into this competition. ACEC Colorado’s entry guidelines generally follow those established for the ACEC National EEA competition, which Grand Conceptor and Excellence Award recipients may advance to.
