ICRI Carolinas Chapter Project of the Year Award

Please familiarize yourself with the rules for the POY before completing the application on this page.

Submission deadline is Thursday, August 31st, 2023

  1. Project qualifications. The project must either be completed after January 1, 2022, or substantially complete before March 31, 2023. The project must not have previously won an ICRI award. Entries will be judged on uniqueness, use of state-of-the-art methods, use of materials, functionality, value engineering, and aesthetics.
  2. Submitting company. Entries must be submitted by a company member of ICRI. The portion of the repair project which is performed by the submitting company must amount to at least 25% of the project cost. (Project cost does not apply to design firms or owners.) For purposes of this determination, a subcontract for the repair portion of a larger project will be considered to be the project.
  3. Owner permission. You must have received permission from the project owner prior to submitting your project.
  4. Entry requirements. Each entry MUST include:
    • A completed application form found on this page
    • Detailed Project Presentation PDF that includes a project description with photos (not to exceed 2,000 words) See Rule #5.
    • An abstract of the project, not to exceed 300 words
  5. Project Presentation PDF (including cover, written description, photographs, and drawings): This will be the only piece seen by the judges. Information you may want to include:
      • Structure characteristics (size, construction, etc.)
      • Problems that prompted repair
      • Inspection/evaluation methods
      • Test results
      • Causes of deterioration
      • Repair system selection (generic)
      • Site preparation
      • Demolition method
      • Surface preparation
      • Application method selection
      • Repair process execution
      • Unforeseen conditions found
      • Special features that make the project worthy of an award
      • The written description of the project must not exceed 2,000 words. However, the more detailed an entry is concerning technical aspects, special features, uniqueness, etc., without exceeding 2000 words, the better informed the judges will be in making their determinations.
    • A maximum of 12 photos/images may be included within the body of the text or as appendices. Images may consist of photographs, figures, and/or drawings. Photographs inserted into other photographs/images shall be considered a separate image for counting purposes.
  6. Participant identification. To ensure fairness in judging, all participant identification (Entry Form Part I) is separated and is not seen by the judges. Therefore, entries must be prepared so that company and product names (of submitting company or project partners) do not appear anywhere except for Entry Form Part I. Product literature should not be submitted, and photos MUST not display company logos or product identification.
  7. Judging.
    • Four judges, selected by the ICRI Carolina Chapter awards committee, will review each project submission and select the best project based on a rating criterion established by the Carolina Chapter awards committee. The judges will be Chapter members of record representing two repair contractors, a material supplier, and an engineer/architect who have not been named in the project submissions.
  • Award and Project Presentation:
  • The Concrete Repair applicant receiving the highest project award submission rating will receive a complimentary Platinum Sponsorship for the following year and will be invited to make a Winning Project Presentation at an Annual Conference
  • The project award winners will be contacted before the end of September by the awards committee.
  • Project of the Year Awards are to be presented at the Fall Awards Banquet at the Fall Conference.
