ENR’s Best of the Best Projects
ENR’s Best of the Best Projects are announced as the culmination of a nearly year-long effort put forth by dozens of industry judges and the ENR editorial team to identify the pinnacle of design and construction achievement in the entire U.S. among projects completed every year.
The competition begins with a call for entries to the construction industry, resulting in hundreds of industry project teams submitting their work to the regional Best Projects competitions. In each of the 10 regions, the editors assemble panels of judges to select the regional winners in 20 categories.
Once the regional winners were chosen, the top winners in each category from each region move up to the national competition. A brand new set of judges from across the country and from all walks of the industry examine each project in an effort to distinguish the best from the best in terms of teamwork, safety, overcoming challenges, innovation and quality.
