ENR Southwest's annual Best Projects contest will honor one project as the overall Project of the Year. To deterrmine this winner, our independent industry judges put forth finalists from the Best Projects winners they had already selected. These projects are then presented to the entire judging panel, who vote for what they believe is the very best project in this year's competition.

This year, our judges selected three finalists for Project of the Year. The winner will be announced at our November 9 virtual Best Projects celebration.
