About

Build Nebraska Awards

Purpose
The Nebraska Building Chapter AGC is pleased to announce the Build Nebraska Awards for 2017. This program is designed to recognize outstanding projects built by members of the Nebraska Building Chapter. The Build Nebraska Awards are intended to promote a greater appreciation of the work our member firms produce. Also, by recognizing the very best, we promote outstanding performance and quality construction throughout the entire state.

Eligibility
The competition is open to all Nebraska Building Chapter members in good standing. The judging criteria mirrors that of the AGC of America’s Build America Awards. If a project is a joint venture, all companies affiliated with the construction project must be Nebraska Building Chapter members in good standing.

Projects must have been completed in 2015, 2016 or 2017. The entry fee for each project submitted is $295. Small and large projects will be considered equally——it is generally the uniqueness that determines Build Nebraska Award winners.

Judging
A jury team made up of peer construction professionals from across the United States will select the top outstanding construction projects to receive the 2017 Build Nebraska Awards. All winners will be announced and their award presented at the Fall Social, Dinner, and Awards Program on November 16, 2017, at the Champions Club in Lincoln.

Awards and Recognition
The Nebraska Building Chapter Build Nebraska Award winners will be recognized at Evening Social Event in November. The Chapter will promote all 2017 award-winning projects as well as distribute national and local press releases. Winners will be highlighted in the Midlands Business Journal in a full-page advertisement and other media options including social media outlets. Plaques will be presented to the winner and honorable mention contractors. Also, plaques will be provided to present to project owners. The Build Nebraska Awards can be used as a high profile marketing tool for your firm. While promoting quality and innovation to your clients, prospective clients and architectural firms, you will be viewed by your peers as “one of the best.”
