  • Under $5,000,000
  • $5,000,000 and over

Best Highway-Heavy Project

  • Under $5,000,000
  • $5,000,000 and over

Best Utility Project

  • $3,000,000 and over

Projects are Evaluated on:

  • Unique Aspects
  • Special Values
  • Special Challenges
  • Project Management
  • Budget/Schedule
  • Safety Performance

Along with their detailed narrative, GC's are encouraged to also honor the work of specialty contractors, supplier/service companies or architect/engineer/owners whose contribution was critical to a project's exemplary nature and success. If the project wins, these partners are honored with a Partners in Excellence award.

NEW! Beginning with the 2017 Pinnacle Awards, judges may also give CAGC Award of Excellence awards to projects which didn’t earn the Pinnacle Award but still met much of the Pinnacle criteria.  


Build with the Best Award

This distinguished award honors the contributions of a non-contractor individual for his or her role in advancing the construction industry and the overall Carolinas economic welfare, whether from outside the industry altogether or from our own Carolinas AGC supplier/service company membership sector.
