ENR Northwest is proud to announce the latest winners of the region’s Best Projects 2018 competition. The magazine’s Excellence in Safety Award, which is juried by a separate group of safety experts, will be named later.

An expert panel of judges have completed weeks of scoring and discussion to determine the list of winners. The projects listed below will be profiled in the November issue of ENR Northwest, and at the awards presentation on Nov. 15 in Seattle. Visit www.enrbestprojectsawards.com for more info or to register.

Judges reviewed more than 30 projects located in Oregon, Alaska and Washington state. Projects were evaluated on the ability of the project team to overcome challenges, contribution to the industry and community, safety and construction and design quality. Judges will also designate an overall Project of the Year from the Best Project-level winners listed below–we’ll announce that winner in our November issue and at the banquet.

Also at the banquets, we will also take the opportunity to honor the firms the Northwest Specialty Contractor of the Year, as well as the ENR Northwest 2018 Legacy Award winner
Hope to see you there!
