Best Buildings Results Are In

The judges for AGC’s Best Buildings Awards have selected 18 winning projects as 2016 award recipients.

On behalf of AGC New Mexico, I join you in congratulating this year’s winners of the annual Best Buildings Awards.  This is the 26th year we’ve recognized and awarded member’s submitted projects based upon the complexity and challenges of the construction process.  The Best Buildings Awards celebration honors the best in commercial construction and is attended by industry’s top construction professionals, public and private owners, dignitaries and business community leaders.  AGC New Mexico’s Best Buildings Awards are more than recognition of design aesthetics, these winning projects are judged by accomplished peers who look deeper into the construction management challenges, expertise of crafts and sustainability of a project.  
This year, we celebrate 18 impressive projects and over 40 specialty craft member companies.These winning companies exemplify outstanding construction management and specialty work which embrace the latest emerging trends in project delivery and technology. 
Congratulations to each of the winners.  You work hard at your profession and we applaud your contributions to our communities.  Construction matters and impacts all of New Mexico. We look forward to our future in growing construction markets, developing the careers of construction professionals and continuing to improve our state.  How fitting that we do so by celebrating your work."
