We're at work examining projects that broke ground and began substantial construction in the tristate region last year to find which ones had the highest contract values. Once completed, we'll publish the list of the top projects in our March 11 issue. But before we do that, we need your help.

If you can recommend a project with a contract value of at least $60 million that began substantial construction in 2012, tell us about it. We're looking for projects throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. We need to hear from you by Feb. 11.

Here’s what to do: Send an e-mail to ENRNY@mcgraw-hill.com with Top Starts Nominee in the subject line, and provide project details – including project name and location, contract size and date of ground breaking. Include your name, company and the best phone number by which to reach you.

Good luck to all the contenders. We hope to hear from you soon.
