2020 Excellence in Concrete Construction event - Canceled

Regrettably, we have decided to cancel our 2020 EIC event due to low submissions and circumstances which limits gathering and our ability to properly acknowledge each submission and the teams who worked hard to complete competitive projects. All 2020 submissions will automatically be included in WACA's 2021 EIC event.
