ENR’s Regional Best Projects competitions are now accepting entries at www.enr.com/bestprojects/2019 through the regular deadline of May 31st.
Submit by May 1 to take advantage of the heavily discounted early bird entry fee of $50. Entry fee rises to $95 after that date. There will be a ‘late’ entry period after May 31 that hasn’t been announced yet. There will be a late fee penalty for those entries received after May 31.
Note that this competition is separate from the Global Best Projects, which also went live about a month ago.
The Regional Best Projects competitions are dedicated to honoring the best construction projects and the companies that designed and built them in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Projects compete in 20 specialized categories, ranging from airports to sports/entertainment.
Independent juries of industry leaders in design and construction from each of ENR's 10 regional editions will judge the projects using five criteria, including safety, innovation and teamwork. The winners will be honored at an awards ceremony later in the year and will be featured in the regional editions of ENR. Projects deemed best in category will automatically compete in the Best of the Best Projects, a national juried competition appearing in ENR.
Entries may be submitted by any of the firms working on the project, but the most successful entries are joint entries incorporating input from multiple key team members, such as the design firm, contractor and owner.
