Build Ohio Awards - presented by Associated General Contractors

One of the most prestigious awards that we are most proud of is the Build Ohio Award. Each year (since 1993), the Ohio Chapters of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) host what has been compared to the "Oscars of Construction," by recognizing one project that is judged as one of the best construction projects in Ohio. Contractors across the state have an opportunity to submit one or more projects that meet several pre-determined judging criteria, in one of six categories. The categories include New Construction projects Over $10 Million, New Construction Under $10 Million, Construction Management, Industrial/Heavy, Renovation, and Specialty. Each project entry includes a 30" x 40" display board including photos of the project, ten 8"x 10" project color photos, and a 5-page written description of the project covering the pre-determined outlined criteria.
