Projects in Maryland, Massachusetts and Illinois recognized

RESTON, Va. – The American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI) is pleased to announce the following top Professional Project Award (PPA) winners for 2022:

  • Best Overall Project (over 100mm) – The Arthur J. Altmeyer Building Modernization, HGA; Woodlawn, MD
  • Best Overall Project (under 100mm) - The Joan and Edgar Booth Theatre Boston University, Vanderweil Engineers; Brookline, MA
  • Most Innovative Project (over 100mm) - The Glenstone Museum, Altieri Sebor Wieber, LLC; Potomac, MD
  • Most Innovative Project (under 100mm) - 800 Fulton Market, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill; Chicago, IL

Traditionally, AEI announces project winners during its in-person annual Awards Banquet; however, AEI held the awards ceremony virtually this year. The AEI Professional Project Award recognizes outstanding achievements in design and construction by honoring the art and science of an integrated approach to architectural engineering. The program focuses on high performance buildings including structural, mechanical, electrical and lighting systems as well as construction management and architectural engineering integration. Projects are evaluated on originality and innovative character, integration and collaboration, sustainability, energy efficiency and economics, effective use of technology and constructability and site logistics.

“The Professional Project Awards showcase the best and brightest of the current design and construction landscape,” said Daniel S. Grauerholz, LEED AP BD+C, Assistant Project Manager, PROJECT MANAGEMENT ADVISORS, INC., Professional Project Awards Chair. “The projects submitted highlight not only the ingenuity and technical knowledge of architectural engineers around the world but the leaps the profession is taking and the baseline for what projects will look like as we move into a more advanced built world.”

In addition to the Best Overall and Most Innovative awards, the Joan and Edgar Booth Theatre Boston University, submitted by VANDERWEIL Engineers, won the Award of Excellence for the Architectural Engineering Integration category. For a full list of winners, please visit

PPA submissions were reviewed by a committee of jurors including distinguished members of the design and construction industry and representatives from AEI’s Board of Governors and Academic Council.
