Janet Wackrow, Vice President of Chicago-based AES Services, Inc. recently chaired the 2016 ACEC Illinois Engineering Excellence Awards. This competition recognizes projects of engineering achievement by Illinois consulting engineering firms. Projects may be located anywhere in the world, but must have been substantially completed by an Illinois-based firm. Entries are judged on the basis of engineering excellence, the degree to which the client’s needs are met, and the benefits to the public welfare and private practice of engineering.
Forty-five awards were presented; 18 Merit Awards, 15 Special Achievement Awards and 12 Honor Awards. Additional information on the 2016 Engineering Excellence Awards can be found at http://www.acecil.org/exawards.cfm
