ENR Northwest is pleased to announce the winners of its 2016 Best Projects competition, which is open to projects in Alaska, Oregon and Washington.

A panel of six judges represented the varied demographic imprints in the industry — from project manager to vice presidents and senior architects. The judges also selected a number of merit winners.

Accompanying these awards will be an Excellence in Safety award and one project will win top honors as the Project of the Year. The safety winner will be announced soon, so stay tuned. The Project of the Year winner will be revealed in December.

All of the winning projects will be covered in more detail in the December issue of ENR Northwest, and the winners will be honored at an event in Seattle on Dec. 13. Registration is available here. Early-bird pricing ends Dec. 6.

If you have questions, please e-mail me at jguzzon.enr@gmail.com.

Congratulations to all of the winners!
