Northwest Construction Announces Best of 2010 Award Winners
Seattle – September 22 – Northwest Construction, a leading industry magazine published by McGraw-Hill Construction, is pleased to announce the winners of its Best of 2010 Awards. The annual competition recognizes construction and design excellence in the three-state region that includes Washington, Oregon and Alaska.
After carefully scoring each project and engaging in intense discussion, an independent jury comprised of design and construction professionals arrived at 20 winning projects and three honorable mentions in categories such as Best Green Building and Best Transportation Project.
“The jury considered a variety of criteria for each project, from teamwork and safety to innovation and aesthetics,” says Scott Blair, senior editor of Northwest Construction. “This year’s group of 75 entries impressed the judges with their quality and variety.”
The winners will be profiled in detail in the December issue of Northwest Construction and on www.northwest.construction.com. In addition, project teams will be honored during an awards ceremony breakfast at the Seattle Marriott Waterfront on Thursday, December 9. To attend, visit www.construction.com/events/bestof2010/
