Metis – Sustainable Infrastructure Award Nominations 2021

ASU’s Metis Center for Infrastructure and Sustainable Engineering within the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment is pleased to announce the third annual Sustainable Infrastructure Awards. We invite your organization to submit a nomination package for recent infrastructure projects.

The award highlights cutting edge infrastructure practices that drive sustainability including those that address environmental, social, or emerging technology challenges, or the growing complex environments that infrastructure are expected to operate in. Nominations are welcome from Phoenix-area infrastructure professionals within public, private, non-profit, and academic organizations. Note, nominations are limited to one per organization. Please consider submitting your own project, nominating a colleague’s work, and/or sharing this announcement with groups you feel made a significant contribution to the Phoenix-area’s sustainability efforts.

Additional information including instructions for preparing a nomination package can be found at metis.asu.edu/awards. Nomination packages are due by Friday, May 28, 2021, and will be reviewed by the Metis Center’s leadership team. Winners will receive a plaque for your office, will be featured on our website, and will be featured in press releases. Previous winners are encouraged to submit nominations for new projects.

We at ASU’s Metis Center thank you for your contributions to Arizona’s sustainable infrastructure development efforts. If you have any questions please email Director Chester at mchester@asu.edu.
