Nominations for the annual Ontario Consulting Engineering Awards (OCEA) program have opened for member companies of the Consulting Engineers of Ontario (CEO).
The winners will be announced during a gala dinner on April 26, 2019, at Copper Creek Golf Club in Kleinburg, Ont. All project entries will be on display at the event and mentioned in the annual Accolades magazine.
Four awards of excellence will be presented, based on the size of the company. These include firms with up to 50 employees, firms with 51 to 100, firms with 101 to 350 employees and those with more than 351.
CEO will also present awards of merit in seven categories: building engineering and science, environment, industry, energy and resources, project management, studies and research, transit, and transportation structural.
The most prestigious award, the Willis Chipman, will go to the firm whose project best demonstrates engineering excellence and innovation. Member firms may submit a maximum of five entries per year.
The call for entries will open Sept. 19. A notice of intent to submit must be emailed by Oct. 12. Project submissions must be delivered to the CEO office no later than Nov. 30. A PowerPoint presentation won’t be required as part of the submission package. Previously the transit category had included both transit and transportation structure; however, this year each will have their own category.
