SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings is now accepting nominations for its 2018-19 Structure Awards, to be presented at the 2019 Coatings+ Conference in February.

The Structure Awards recognize the work of teams of contractors, designers, end-users and coating manufacturers for excellence on protective coatings projects. In addition to being honored at SSPC’s annual conference, the projects will be featured in JPCL.

The Lewis and Clark Bridge over the Ohio River in Louisville, Kentucky, was one recipient of the George Campbell Award in 2018.

To be eligible (unless otherwise noted), a project must have been completed between July 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018. Nominations will be accepted through Aug. 30.

A representative of the structure owner must attend the awards luncheon at Coatings+, which takes place Feb. 11-14, 2019, at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, and must grant permission for information to be published with the JPCL photo essay in order to be eligible.

The Awards

The awards to be handed out are:

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. (This project does not need to have been completed in 2017-18.)

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, or that the coating on the structure compliments the environment while enhancing the structure itself. The coating may 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 may 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 a project that requires coordination with multiple trades or sub-contractors.

Erik S. Kline Award, for outstanding achievement in industrial coatings work performed in a fixed shop facility. The project can be repair work or new construction.

Military Coatings Project Award of Excellence, in recognition of exceptional coatings work performed on U.S. military ships, structures or facilities. 

SSPC Coatings Industry Spirit Award, for recognition of a coatings project that demonstrates extraordinary service benefiting a community or the industry.

The Military Coatings and Industry Spirit awards are also not subject to the July 2017-June 2018 time restriction.

The nomination form is available at the SSPC website. Questions can be referred to Terry Sowers, SSPC Senior Member Services Advisor: 1-877-281-7772 x2219 or sowers@sspc.org.
