ENR Mountain States 2013 Best Projects Winners By: Mark Shaw

ENR Mountain States is pleased to announce the winners of its 2013 Best Projects competition in the region, which includes Utah, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.

A panel of eight judges from all areas of the industry—architects, GCs and engineers—selected winners in each of categories. The judges also selected a number of merit winners and awarded ties in some categories where they thought the projects were of similar quality.

This is the 13th year producing these awards, which are detailed below. In addition to the awards listed, ENR will present safety awards to several deserving projects, and one project in each area (Intermountain and Colorado/Plain States) will win top honors as the Best Overall, along with some judges’ special recognitions. The safety winners will be announced soon, but the special judges awards will not be named until the morning of the awards banquets.

The awards are split into two areas (Intermountain and Colorado), to correspond with their respective awards events, and arranged by category below. Scroll down to see both lists. Projects will be covered in more detail in the October issue of ENR Mountain States and honored at two breakfast awards events: Salt Lake City on Oct. 29 and Denver on Oct. 30.

If you have questions, please e-mail (Mark Shaw, Editor-in-Chief, ENR Mountain States) at mark.shaw@mhfi.com.

Congratulations to all of the winners!
