The Structural Engineers Association of Metropolitan Washington (SEA-MW) Awards Gala was held on Saturday, February 25, 2023 at St. Francis Hall in Washington, D.C. This annual event is an opportunity for the local structural engineering community to come together to recognize outstanding projects, as well as individual contributions/achievements.
