FRCA’s 2021 Innovative Fiber Project of the Year (IFPY) Awards recognize distinguished projects submitted by any contractor, architect, engineer, facility owner or precaster that specified and/or utilized fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) supplied by an FRCA member.


A panel of industry experts will evaluate projects based on their innovative use of FRC, as well as their value to advancing the use of FRC within the concrete industry. First-place awards will be assigned across five categories: micro-synthetic, macro-synthetic, steel, glass and natural fibers.
