What items will you need to enter a project for consideration? 
  1. The General Contractor will submit a narrative (.doc or .docx, max wordcount 1,200) explaining why this project deserves a Pinnacle Award.
  2. The General Contractor will also submit jobsite photographs (up to 5 photos) for each of their own projects to be considered for an award. SUGGESTION: submit at least one photo of the finished project, and several photos of the project job site while under construction. 
  3. Two (2) letters of Reference will also be required, from either the Project Architect, Project Engineer, or Project Owner. 

The General Contractor also will have the optional opportunity to submit information on up to 3 subcontractors, suppliers, service companies, or designers whose contribution was critical to the project's exemplary nature and success, deemed as Key Partners. If the project wins, these Key Partners will be honored with Pinnacle Partner Awards. Subcontractor, supplier and service companies must also be CAGC members. 

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.
