The Valmont Coatings' galvanizing facility located in Tampa, Florida was recognized with the award in the Duplex System category. The winning project, "New World Center Soundscape," is located in Miami Beach, Florida.

Salina Galvanizing, Valmont's galvanizer in Salina, Kansas, was recognized with two awards. The project "Oil Platform Facility," located in Altamira, Mexico won in the Industrial Category. Also winning for Salina Galvanizing, was its submission for the Bridge and Highway Category, "US 41 Retaining Wall Project" in Fox Valley, Wisconsin.
