The Alliant Build America Awards highlight the nation’s most significant construction projects, and last week ICI member Bowen Engineering Corporation received recognition in this year’s Utility Infrastructure Renovation category.
“I’m thrilled for Bob, and everyone at Bowen Engineering. This recognition shines a national spotlight on an Indiana company that has been a dedicated supporter of AGC of America for decades. Congratulations!” said ICI President Richard Hedgecock.
A panel of judges, representing all areas of construction, evaluated an impressive number of submissions this year, assessing each project’s complexity, use of innovative construction techniques and client satisfaction, among other criteria. The awards, which were announced on March 9 during the AGC of America’s annual convention in Las Vegas, are considered by many to be the most prestigious recognition of construction accomplishments in the U.S.
“The Alliant Build America Award recipients inspire and propel the construction industry; building exceptional projects, shaping America’s future and creating opportunity within our communities,” said Peter Arkley, Senior Managing Director, Alliant Insurance Services. “We congratulate this year’s winners as well as all of the other nominees for their commitment to excellence.”
AGC also released a new report analyzing the elements that made the winning projects so successful. The report found that the successful contractors are using new technology, sophisticated scheduling and innovative collaborative techniques to cope with difficult construction environments, tight timelines and lean budgets. The association is distributing the report to its members so other firms can benefit from the lessons these projects and their contractors have to offer.
