Call for Entries: Siemens’ Fourth Annual Engineering Innovation Award for Fire and Life Safety Design


1/16/2017

WHAT: Call for Submissions: Siemens’ Annual Engineering Innovation Award
 
Siemens recently opened submissions for its fourth annual Siemens Engineering Innovation Award, which recognizes innovative thinking and problem solving in fire and life safety system design. All consulting specifying engineering firms that have incorporated Siemens fire and life safety technologies into an innovative design are eligible for nomination.
 
Examples of innovation may range from new applications of existing technology, to cost-effective design solutions, to meeting unique building or construction requirements. The winning entry will demonstrate an innovative solution that solved a customer’s difficult challenge or advanced the use of technology in this field.
 
Last year’s winner, Lacey Fire Protection Engineering, LLC of Greenbrier, Ark., used an innovative design approach that incorporated Siemens’ Cerberus PRO intelligent voice communication panel into a small K-12 school district in southwestern Arkansas.
 
WHY: Consulting specifying engineers seldom get the recognition they deserve in keeping buildings and those who occupy them safe. Siemens wants to help change that.
 
The winning firm’s name will be engraved on a plaque on the front of the award. The one-of-a-kind award, which was commissioned with Waterford Crystal in Ireland, is a replica of a traditional fire alarm manual station.
 
WHERE: Siemens will present the 2017 Siemens Engineering Innovation Award on the evening of June 5 at the Siemens Engineers’ Reception, with transportation provided from the 2017 National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Convention & Expo in
Boston.
 
WHEN: January 1 – March 31, 2017
 
ACTION: Nominate a consulting specifying engineering firm that has incorporated Siemens solutions innovatively in fire and life safety system specifications. Go to  www.usa.siemens.com/eiaward for details.
