Award Programs

Carolinas AGC Pinnacle Awards

Due to Covid restrictions regarding in-person judging and the awards celebration, nominations for the 2020 Pinnacle Awards will open August 2021. You will have the opportunity to nominate 2020 projects and 2021 projects, in each of the two respective timeframe categories.

The most prestigious recognition in the Carolinas construction industry honors the work of general contractors and their projects' key partners.

A panel of CAGC member representatives evaluates - in confidence - the work of their peers. The presentation of the Pinnacle Awards is celebrated at CAGC's Annual Convention finale evening, shining a light on our industry's best projects of the year.

How It Works - 2 Types of Awards

Project Awards

The lead contractor (GC/Prime/CM) submits any number of projects, completed within the previous 12 months to be considered for a Pinnacle Award in the categories of:  

Best Building Project

  • 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

  • Under $3,000,000
  • $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

Nominations are now closed.

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.
