What are some ways my firm can be recognized for exceptional work in construction?

Recognition for exceptional projects is a great way to earn new business. Members of the AGC can submit their projects for consideration to receive a regional Building Excellence Award. The AGC of America also hosts the Build America Awards annually and one winner receives automatic submission to the national awards. Visit www.buildersassociation.com to see the list of this year’s winners and finalists, and find out if local firms, Carson-Mitchell, Inc. and R.E. Smith Construction Company, took home top prizes.
