ENR’s Regional Best Projects competitions are now accepting entries at www.enr.com/bestprojects/2019 through the regular deadline of May 31st. The ‘late’ entry period starts after May 31.

The deadline for late entries will be June 14 for ENR California and ENR New York. The late entry deadline for all other regions is June 24.

There is a late fee penalty of $30 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.
