In the words of AGC's Past President J. Doug Pruitt, these projects, with their vision, scope and grandeur literally dare to challenge, dare to change. Chosen by you, the contractors, recipients of the Build America Awards have demonstrated the very best when it comes to building a better America and improving our quality of life.
To evolve its showcase, the Build America Awards now include a "Partnering Excellence" category to recognize those projects best epitomizing the principles of partnering. Inspired by AGC's Past President Marvin M. Black, the inclusion of partnering into the Build America Awards represents a timely and unified celebration of the construction industry's finest.
