The deadline for applications for the 2015 AGC/Alliant Build America Awards is coming up fast. We would love to see our members getting the recognition they deserve! If you are interested in applying, please do so soon, as you will need to contact us here at the Idaho AGC to receive your member ID# prior to applying (this number is required for the award application). To do so, please contact Kelly at 208.472.0459 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and read the below information from the AGC of America:
Members and chapters encouraged to apply: deadline is 10/31. AGC of America is proud to announce the launch of the 2015 AGC/Alliant Build America and the AGC in the Community competitions. AGC encourages all member companies in good standing who meet the competition requirements to apply. With several categories and types of projects from which to choose, including an environmental category, we hope there is a “right fit” for one of your projects. For several years now, AGC has offered a category that focuses solely on the environmental aspects of a project such as wetland mitigation, ground water clean-up or required reclaiming or remediating an environmentally contaminated site (e.g., brownfields, superfund, illegal dumping site, and abandoned mine). In addition, many past winners of the AGC/Alliant Build America awards have included environmental elements into their submissions, for example, achieving a green building certification. Other Awards News After a successful first year, the 2015 Alliant Build America Awards will again include a "Partnering Excellence" category to recognize those projects best epitomizing the principles of partnering. This award is similar to the Marvin M. Black awards given out prior to 2014. Those looking to apply for this award should choose the AGC Build America Marvin M. Black Partnering Competition application when starting a new entry. This competition has different questions and criteria than the rest of the Build America categories do. A couple of changes we wanted to let you in on:
