  AGC Members Honored for Building Nation’s Premier Construction Projects
AGC presented the 2006 Aon Build America Awards, the highest and most sought-after honor within the construction industry, during AGC’s 87th Annual Convention. Eighteen projects were selected as winners and three were selected for merit awards.

The Aon Build America Awards recognize the nation’s premiere projects, big and small, from across the country.  The Build America Award winners embody the industry at its best and truly illustrate how AGC contractors are building America’s quality of life.

The Build America Awards contribute directly to the AGC Education and Research Foundation.  Since 1993, The Build America Scholarship Program has awarded more than $250,000 in scholarships to nearly 80 construction management and civil engineering students. 

Entries are submitted from every area of general contracting including: federal & heavy, municipal & utilities, highway, design–build, environmental, international and construction management projects in the categories of new and renovation. Winners are chosen by a contractor’s toughest critics, a group of peers and judged on: meeting the challenge of a difficult job; excellence in project management; contractor’s innovation in construction techniques; contractor’s state-of-the-art-advancement; contractor’s sensitivity to the environment and surroundings; excellence in client service and the contractor’s contribution to the community.  The awards are a long–standing AGC tradition, beginning in 1972.
