Gate Continues its Streak at Annual PCI Awards

The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute will hand Gate Precast another top honor and recognize six other Gate projects at the 2020 PCI awards on March 6.

JACKSONVILLE, FL – Gate Precast will receive an unprecedented seven project awards during the upcoming Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute Design Awards in Fort Worth, Texas. PCI will present the awards March 6 during its 2020 Convention.

The 57th annual ceremony, held at the conclusion of the convention, will showcase applications that push the envelope, overcome challenges and improve concepts. A panel of judges will award 25 projects across North America for excellence in design in both transportation and building categories.

“We owe our success to the creative designers and owners who consistently push the envelope,” says Dean Gwin, president & COO, Gate Construction Materials Group. “We are honored to be recognized alongside so many other deserving recipients.”

Of particular note, Gate will receive the prestigious Harry H. Edwards Industry Advancement Award, as well as Best Healthcare Project, for its work on Mount Sinai Medical Center’s Skolnick Surgical Tower in Miami Beach. The award showcases fresh, uninhibited concepts that move the industry to the next generation of technology. Architect CannonDesign designed the project and Gate’s Kissimmee plant produced the precast.
