SSPC Structure Award Nominations Due Oct. 30

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Comment | More

SSPC is accepting nominations from the membership until October 30, 2009, for the association’s annual Structure Awards for outstanding coating work.

 

The awards are given to recognize the work of teams of contractors, designers, end users, and coating manufacturers for excellence on particular industrial or commercial coatings projects. The awards will be handed out at the SSPC Annual Business Meeting on Sunday, February 7, at the PACE 2010 show in Phoenix, AZ.

 

SSPC seeks nominations for all types of structures, including bridges, tanks, ships, concrete structures, and industrial or commercial facilities. A representative of the structure’s owner must be willing to attend the PACE show to accept the award and give permission for the information to appear in a JPCL photo essay later in 2010.

 

Except for the Charles G. Munger Award for coating longevity, work on the structures must have been completed between July 1, 2008 and June 30, 2009. Award categories and criteria are given below.

 

           Crone Knoy Award: For outstanding achievement in commercial or industrial coatings work that demonstrates innovation, durability, or utility. The qualities that may represent outstanding achievement in this area include excellence in craftsmanship or execution of work and use of state-of-the-art techniques or products to creatively solve problems or provide long-term service.

 

           Charles G. Munger Award: For the outstanding industrial or commercial coatings project demonstrating longevity of the original coating. The structure may have had spot repairs or overcoating with the original coating still intact.

 

           William Johnson Award: For outstanding achievement demonstrating aesthetic merit in industrial or commercial coatings work. The qualities that are considered for aesthetic merit include color, gloss, or texture. Other criteria considered include the coating on the structure complementing the environment while enhancing the structure itself. The coating may also represent a theme, an object, or a specific graphic design.

 

           George Campbell Award: For outstanding achievement in the completion of a difficult or complex industrial or commercial coatings project. The qualities that may represent achievement in a difficult or complex structure include work occurring in harsh or extreme environmental conditions, work completed under strict time constraints, work done with limited access or in high traffic areas, work on a structure with complex structural components, or work on a project that requires coordination with multiple trades or subcontractors.
