ENR MidAtlantic is excited to announce that the Best Projects 2017 competition winners have been revealed. The Excellence in Safety Award, which is juried by a separate group of safety experts, will be announced at a later date.
The winners listed below will be profiled in depth in the October 23 print issue of ENR MidAtlantic, and an awards presentation will be Nov. 2 in Baltimore. Visit www.enrbestprojectsawards.com for more info or to register.
Two panels of industry judges reviewed and discussed more than 60 projects located throughout the region, including Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.
The five judges—including architects, engineers and contractors—were divided into two groups and assigned a group of categories. Projects were evaluated on the ability of the project team to overcome challenges, contribution to the industry and community, safety and construction and design quality. Due to the large number of entries, we can only honor a fraction of the projects that are submitted each year, so if your project didn’t win this year, please be sure to submit next year!
Judges could select any combination of Best Project-level category winners and Award of Merit honorees. Judges will also designate an overall Project of the Year from the Best Project-level winners listed below – we’ll announce that winner in our October issue and at the banquet.
The firms that were selected throughout the year as our Owner, Design Firm, Contractor and Specialty Contractor of the Year will also be honored at the banquet, as well as MidAtlantic’s Legacy Award winner. To nominate someone for the legacy award click here.
