The Build Georgia Awards began in 1989 when the Georgia Branch, AGC recognized General Contractor members and their construction teams for outstanding performances on some of Georgia’s most remarkable projects.
In 1997, Georgia Branch established an award for specialty contractor members. The contributions specialty contractors give to the industry are vital to the success of the overall project, for this reason we are proud to include them in the tradition of the Build Georgia Award program.
Build Georgia honors achievements of Georgia’s construction firms and the dedicated men and women that make up the state’s construction industry. Their skill, integrity and responsibility and spirit of innovation and problem solving are making history in Georgia and improve our state’s quality of life.
The Build Georgia General Contractor Award competition seeks to honor excellent construction projects throughout the state. The key judging criteria for the 2011 program included:
- Exceptional project safety performance
