JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas (AFNS) -- The Air Force Civil Engineer Center has announced the winners of the 2018 Air Force Design Awards, recognizing eight innovative projects for excellence in design and efficiency.

“These award-winning projects exemplify the Air Force’s commitment to partnering with industry to deliver quality, mission ready facilities,” said Col. Scott Matthews, AFCEC Facility Engineering director. “These designers optimized and balanced functionality, cost-efficiency, sustainability and aesthetics.”

Two award levels were given this year: the Honor Award, which is the highest achievement, followed by the Merit Award.

This year’s recipients are:

A 3-person juror team analyzed the design entries, compared them against the predetermined judging criteria, and selected for awards those projects that excelled in all aspects of the criteria, said David Duncan, AFCEC Senior Architect and Air Force Design Awards program manager.

“When assessing a project, we ask jurors to emphasize cost control, energy efficiency, functionality and sustainability,” Duncan said. “These outstanding designs set the bar high and help inspire future innovation, leading to continual design improvement and success.” Awards will be formally presented to the winners Nov. 14 during the AFCEC Design and Construction Partnering Symposium in San Antonio.
