Earlier this year, ENR Northwest announced its 2019 Northwest Regional Best Projects award winners. After polling our judges, we are pleased to announce the 2019 finalists for Best Overall Project of the Year.

To be considered for the Project of the Year award, the entry had to be a Best Project-level winner (as opposed to an Award of Merit winner in its individual category).

The Project of the Year winners will be revealed at ENR Northwest’s annual Regional Best Projects event on Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2019 at the W Seattle. Please click here for registration and more information about the event.

The Project of the Year is part of ENR’s annual Regional Best Projects competition. Each year, ENR Northwest assembles a group of judges, with varying specialties and expertise in the construction industry, to review, score and form a panel to determine Best Projects winners for the region. Judges independently review entries, score each on pre-specified criteria, and convene with fellow judges to compare impressions and scores. Together, the judges’ panels select honorees for Best Project and Merit awards. (Judges recuse themselves in cases of conflict of interest.)

Listed in alphabetical order are the 2019 Northwest Project of the Year finalists:
