ENR MidAtlantic is pleased to release its 2018 Best Projects winners. 

The Best Project safety award winners, which are juried by a separate group of safety experts, will be announced soon.

Listed at the bottom of this post, the 31 winning projects will be profiled in depth in the October 22 print issue of ENR MidAtlantic. They will also be honored at an awards presentation on Nov. 7 in Baltimore. Visit www.enrbestprojectsawards.com for more info or to register.

Two panels of industry judges reviewed 82 projects located throughout the region, including Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.

The  judges—including an architect, engineer, contractor and a specialty contractor—were divided into two groups and assigned a group of categories. Projects were evaluated on the ability of the project team to overcome challenges, contribution to the industry and community, safety and construction and design quality. Due to the large number of entries, we can only honor a fraction of the projects that are submitted each year, so if your project didn’t win this year, please be sure to submit next year!

Judges could select any combination of Best Project-level category winners and Award of Merit honorees. Judges will also designate an overall Project of the Year from the Best Project-level winners listed below – we’ll announce that winner in our October issue and at the banquet.

The firms that were selected throughout the year as our Owner, Design Firm, Contractor and Specialty Contractor of the Year will also be honored at the banquet, as well as MidAtlantic’s Legacy Award winner. To nominate someone for the legacy award click here.
