2020 ACECH Engineering Excellence Awards

The 2020 American Council of Engineering Companies of Hawai‘i’s (ACECH) Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) banquet was held on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at the Koolau Ballroom. This year’s event recognized 10 outstanding engineering projects that were submitted by ACECH’s member firms.

The 2020 Grand Conceptor Award went to engineering firm KSF for their Umauma Stream Bridge, Hawaii Belt Road, Kakalau, Hawaii.

ACECH would like to extend a warm mahalo to all of this year’s EEA entrants on the contributions that their projects have made to the engineering community and our society. ACECH would also like to thank all of this year’s event sponsors. Without them, the EEA would not be possible!
