After much deliberation and discussion, industry judges have chosen the 20 winners of ENR’s annual Best of the Best Projects competition. The announcement is the culmination of a year-long effort put forth by nearly 100 members of the construction industry selected by ENR editors to judge the various stages of the contest. The projects listed below represent the pinnacle of design and construction achievement in their respective categories from across the U.S. among those completed between May 2018 and May 2019.
The competition began last March with a call for entries for the construction industry that resulted in 918 project teams submitting their work to the regional Best Projects competitions. In each of the 10 regions, the editors assembled panels of judges to select winners in 20 categories organized by market sector.
After the regional winners were chosen, the regional first-place winners in each category moved up to the national competition—around 200 projects in total. An entirely new group of 14 judges from across the country and from all walks of the industry examined each project to determine the best of the best in terms of teamwork, safety, overcoming challenges, innovation and quality.
We are thrilled to announce that the Gateway Arch Museum was named Best of the Best in the Cultural | Worship category. Three Project of the Year finalists will be announced in the coming weeks and the Project of the Year will be featured in ENR’s March 23 issue.
