2023 ASA Outstanding Shotcrete Project Awards

The American Shotcrete Association (ASA) is proud to announce the recipients of its 2023 Outstanding Shotcrete Project Awards. The recipients were honored at the 19th Annual ASA Awards Banquet held in conjunction with ASA’s 2024 ASA Shotcrete Convention and Technology Conference, on March 5, 2024, at the Lakeway Resort, in Austin, Texas. These awards exemplify the exceptional advantages of shotcrete placement of concrete.

“Our Lakeway convention provided an ideal backdrop for recognizing our awardees, presenting shotcrete knowledge, conducting committee business, and fostering connections among attendees at the 2024 Shotcrete Convention and Technology Conference. Our Awards Banquet, the convention finale, spotlighted our member companies’ shotcrete projects from around the globe that exemplify the best qualities of shotcrete placement. These projects confirm the benefits of shotcrete placement in concrete construction, including enhanced sustainability, architectural creativity, increased efficiency, and high quality. All with concrete’s inherent durability and serviceability,” stated Charles Hanskat, Executive Director of the ASA.”

The winners were selected by an awards committee comprised of shotcrete professionals who dedicated their time and expertise to review the nominees.
