SSPC members have until October 15 to nominate their best projects for SSPC’s 2012-2013 structure awards.

The awards are given annually to recognize the work of teams of contractors, designers, end users and coating manufacturers for excellence on particular coatings projects. The awards will be handed out the SSPC 2013 Conference, Featuring GreenCoat at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, San Antonio, TX, slated for January 13-17.

In recognition of the importance of the Structure Awards, they will be given out at the Awards Luncheon on Monday, January 14. The winning structures will also be featured in a photo essay in the JPCL after the conference.

SSPC is looking for nominations for all types of structures: bridges, tanks, concrete structures, industrial, or commercial facilities.

The descriptions of the Structure Awards are listed below. Except for the longevity award and the Military Coatings Project Award of Excellence, the work on the structures must have been completed between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012.
