(UPDATE: now includes Excellence in Safety honorees.)

Props to the judges of ENR New York’s Best Projects contest: because of the sheer quality of this year’s contestants, it was hard to drill down winners in each category. But they did a fantastic job reviewing spectacular projects in New Jersey and New York.

All of this year’s honorees, listed below, will be profiled in depth in the Sept. 24-Oct. 1 print edition of ENR New York. Additionally, we’ll honor each winning project at our Oct. 2 awards breakfast, to be held this year at the Edison Ballroom in Manhattan. For more information on the event, or to register, please go to: http://www.enrbestprojectsawards.com/10-events/10-enr-new-york-new-york-city.html

Every year, ENR New York assembles an independent group of judges to review, score and determine final winners from the states of New Jersey and New York. They review each entry on their own, scoring them on various criteria, and then meet to discuss which projects impressed them the most. Judges may select honorees for both Best Project and Award of Merit.

This year, our panelists are: Stuart Binstock, president and CEO of the Construction Financial Management Association; Judy Cooper of Judy D. Cooper Communications; F. H. "Bud" Griffis, professor of construction engineering and management at New York University; John Kolaya, president of Kolaya Associates LLC Construction Consultant; Ibrahim S. Odeh, research director and founder of Global Leaders in Construction Management at Columbia University; and Howard Sackel, senior vice president and regional manager of PACO Technologies.

Judges will also designate an overall Project of the Year from the Best Project-level winners listed below – we’ll reveal that winner at the breakfast. 

Also at the breakfast, we will honor the organizations or firms we’ve recognized as our Owner, Design Firm, Contractor and Specialty Contractor of the Year, as well as the ENR New York’s Legacy Award winners. Hope to see you there!
